A WOMAN flew into a rage in a Glasgow train station when another woman looked at her and tore clumps of hair from her victim's head.

Gillian Wilson was in an elevator with her victim in Glasgow Central Station.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard how the 32-year-old accused the other woman of staring at her.

When the victim denied the claim, Wilson kicked off and ended up dragging the woman by the hair around the main station concourse.

It was only when a male passer-by stepped in to help that the rampage ended.

Depute fiscal Lauren Ram Sangray told the court of the incident, which happened around 9.30pm on September 28, 2019.

She said: "The accused was within an elevator at Central Station.

"The witness was also within the elevator.

"The accused enraged the witness in conversation whereby the accused said the witness was staring at her.

"The witness said she wasn’t and the accused said she was being cheeky."

Wilson left the elevator.

But then she ran back and grabbed the victim by the hair and dragged her out in to the main area of the station where she then dragged her around the floor.

An unknown man stepped in to separate Wilson from her victim.

Ms Ram Sangray added: "The witness lost clumps of her hair and had a superficial cut on her head."

Wilson, from Greenock, was said to have made significant changes in her life since the attack.

Her defence brief told the court: "She is engaged to her partner who supports her here at court today.

"The reasons she was there [at Central Station] are not something she engages in any more."

Wilson was placed on a community payback order with supervision for 18 months.

She was also tagged for 22 weeks, keeping her at home between 7pm and 7am.

Sheriff Patricia Pryce said: “I appreciate you have had quite a difficult past but taking account of what is in the report you have made some serious changes to your life.”
