A SEX attacker who followed a lone teenager for more than 10 minutes before assaulting her in a secluded car park has been jailed for two years.

Brian Ross 33, pounced on the 17-year-old near Glasgow Caledonian University in January this year.

Ross had a previous conviction for loitering around Strathclyde University in his car and targeting young women.

The student was walking home to her accommodation from a night out when Ross leapt out at her.

He could be seen following the teen for 12 minutes before he carried out the assault.

Ross fled the scene as the “distressed” victim shouted “What the f***.”

Moments later, Ross is witnessed returning to his car and driving out of view of the cameras.

He was traced through his car documents and was arrested before initially denying his involvement when quizzed.

Ross pleaded guilty last month at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the sex assault and was sentenced to 24 months by Sheriff Ian Fleming.

He said: “Your behaviour escalated quite significantly and I need to take a serious view of the matter.”

Ross was also put on the sex offenders register for an indefinite period.

An earlier hearing was told Ross’ Ford Focus pulled up at the city’s St Vincent Street just before three in the morning.

Prosecutor Mark Allan said: “Ross got out the car and walked to the side behind the witness and can be seen watching her as she appears oblivious to his presence.”

Mr Allan informed the court that Ross’ last conviction was of a similar nature.

He said: “It involved him driving and loitering around Strathclyde University exiting his vehicle to follow lone females on foot.”

Joanne McMillan, defending, said: “There is no doubt it was a terrible offence that would have caused the complainer a great deal of upset and he accepts that.”
