A GARDENER repeatedly asked a woman to perform a sex act on him for £500 in front of a nine-year-old girl.

David Hughes, 27, “petrified” the 42-year-old when he showed up at her door in October last year.

When his offer was refused, Hughes scratched threats outside the woman’s home in Glasgow’s Barmulloch area.

The court heard that Hughes had cut the woman’s grass that summer with a friend, and claimed he was there to get the money he was owed.

Hughes pleaded guilty yesterday at Glasgow Sheriff Court to causing fear or alarm to the woman and two children.

The court heard Hughes turned up at her house and appeared “drunk with blood on his hands.”

The nine-year-old girl later called the police. Hughes was arrested by officers and taken to the local police station.

Sentence was deferred until next month for reports.

Hughes, from Easterhouse, was remanded in custody.
