A MAN who sexually assaulted a woman at a bowling venue in Glasgow has been ordered to carry out unpaid work.

Piotr Woszczak appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court for sentencing on June 19 after admitting to rubbing the victim’s leg, handling her breasts over her clothing, placing his hand on her vagina over her clothing, and kissing her face on August 9, 2022.

We previously reported that the woman, who Woszczak knew, was walking home when she bumped into him and he asked her to go out for a drink.

The woman refused and said she had other things to do. However, the pair later agreed to meet for a drink, along with another man.

All three were drinking before attending Bowlarama on Glassford Street in the city centre for a game of bowling and more drinks.

Shortly before midnight, the woman left the bowling alley to go to the toilet.

When she returned, Woszczak sat next to her and started feeling her breasts over her top and underwear.

The 38-year-old then felt her upper thigh and groin area over her clothing.

The man who was in their company felt uncomfortable and notified security to keep an eye on Woszczak.

At a hearing on May 8, 2024 – at which Woszczak was not present - the procurator fiscal told the court: “Witnesses all observed the accused’s behaviour and noted the woman highly intoxicated.

“The accused continued in his course of conduct and kissed the woman to her face at which point a member of security staff ejected him via the front door.

“Witnesses thereafter left the locus.”

The other man then made sure the woman got home safely.

She attended a police office on August 12, 2022, to report the incident.

Officers attended Woszczak’s work in February 2023 and arrested him. He was taken to London Road police office where he was cautioned and charged and made no reply.

Woszczak, of Cranhill, was sentenced on June 19, 2024.

His lawyer told Glasgow Sheriff Court that his client is a first-time offender “in every sense of the word”.

The defence solicitor added: “This is a serious offence.

“He doesn’t have any other matters outstanding.”

Sheriff Bernard Ablett imposed a community payback order with social work supervision for 18 months.

Woszczak was also ordered to carry out 225 hours of unpaid work and to be subject to notification requirements for 18 months.
