56-year-old pervert sprays semen from a tube on unsuspecting woman in supermarket parking lot
Samuel Reid denied intentionally spraying semen on the woman and said that he was taking a sample to the doctor for examination
In an appalling attack that took place in the parking lot of a supermarket, a pervert splashed his semen from a vial over a woman. The woman was reportedly leaning onto her car boot while packing her bags outside the Edinburgh Asda at Milton Link when 56-year-old Samuel Reid sprayed a tube of fluid over her back.
The deranged individual pretended to be searching through his own car trunk before he suddenly threw the contents of the vial on the unsuspecting woman. When the victim allegedly confronted her attacker, the self-employed joiner told her he had “nothing squirty or squeezy in his car” and scampered from the scene on his vehicle.
At the time of the attack, the woman, whose identity cannot be revealed for legal reasons, did not know the contents of the tube thrown at her. However, authorities conducted a DNA analysis and found that it was Reid's semen.
Officers then tracked the offender down after identifying him following the incident, which took place on October 28, 2016, at around 9 pm, reported The Scotsman.
That said, following a summary trial at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last month, Reid was found guilty of projecting semen onto the victim's body, which is a lesser crime as compared to an initial charge of ejaculating over the woman.
According to Sheriff Peter McCormack, the attack was “disgusting, perverted and sinister”, and that the offender had engaged in "a lot of planning" before the attack.
Reid was jailed for eight months and the sheriff placed him on the sex offenders register for a good ten years after the repulsive incident.
McCormack added: “I am more than satisfied in this case there is no other appropriate disposal other than imprisonment. It concerns me you have not admitted what you did and you have been unable to offer any explanation as to what you did. What you did was to make a quantity of your semen and wait at the Asda car park and target a lone female who was packing shopping into her car. By means unknown, you threw the quantity of semen over this woman onto her jumper. I am satisfied you did not directly masturbate on to her, given the evidence.”
Having said that, Reid explained his possession of a vial of semen in his car saying he was having trouble producing his "usual quantities" when he ejaculated and that he wanted to take a sample of the same to the doctor for examination.
He claimed he might have leaned on the vial while rummaging his vehicle's boot and the spilled the fluid onto the woman. However, during sentencing, Sheriff McCormack described his version of events as one of "the ‘top two’ in my legal career of the most lamentably unbelievable defense evidence I have ever heard”.
Reid already has a previous conviction for shameless indecency, the court heard. According to McCormack, Scottish Ministers will also be informed of his latest conviction.
