TWO women who carried out a sickening racist attack at a shop in Sauchie walked out of court with Community Payback Orders (CPOs) last week.

Gemma Draper, 26, and Emma Young, 30, were in the dock together at Alloa Sheriff Court for sentencing on Thursday, May 30.

They had been ejected from a pub in the village on the evening of January 19, after becoming too drunk following a christening event.

They then went to a corner shop, where two staff members were working inside.

One of them asked an employee for a phone charger, and after being refused, Draper shouted: ‘You need to stick to your black b*****d p**i shops.’

They both then made further racist comments, and a man who was shopping at the time intervened, asking them to leave the store.

Depute fiscal Ann Orr said: “At that point Ms Young then punched [the man] on the head, in the area of his jaw.

“[An employee] stepped in and Ms Young assaulted him by punching him on the head.”

Young then spat on both of them before running out of the store with Draper.

Police were contacted and traced both accused in the garden of a nearby property soon after.

Ms Orr said: “At this time Ms Draper was volatile, shouting aggressively at the officers.

“She was approached and shouted: ‘Get to f**k,’ and had a high heeled shoe in her hand which she was brandishing at officers.”

Draper was then restrained and arrested, as was Young, who assaulted an officer by kicking him in the process.

They were both taken to Falkirk Police Office, and on the way Draper struck the walls of the police van.

She also called officers “f*****g scummy, ugly, dirty, baldy b******s,” and said she would “slash” them.

Police later found a small quantity of cannabis within her bag.

In mitigation, solicitors for each of the accused claimed their clients were remorseful for their actions, and accepted full responsibility for what took place.

Sheriff Simon Collins QC told them: “You should be ashamed of these offences, it’s a disgraceful was to behave.”

He then gave Draper, of Overton Crescent in Denny, a CPO with 160 hours of unpaid work, and a 12-month supervision requirement.

Young, of Mayfield Drive in Bonnybridge, was given 295 hours of unpaid work to take account of the fact she already has a record for other serious offences.
