GARRY Faulds, boyfriend of Laura Colquhoun, threatened the 53-year-old victim with a blowtorch to make him reveal bank details.

A TEENAGE glamour model and her thug boyfriend are facing jail for trying to blackmail an amateur photographer.

Laura Colquhoun, 17, and Garry Faulds, 21, bound and assaulted their victim in his own home.

They threatened to tell his bosses at a council he had been photographing underage girls. He has never been charged with any such offence.

The victim photographed Colquhoun several times and told the jury she had performed a sex act on him.

He was beaten, bound and threatened with a blowtorch by a masked thug who invaded his home.

And last night, the intruder and his teenage model girlfriend were facing years behind bars for the

brutal extortion plot.

The victim told a High Court jury: “When I walked into the hall there was a guy in a balaclava with the eyes cut out. He was wearing a blue jumpsuit.

“He tried to overpower me. I fell backwards.

“I was screaming ‘Help!’ I was shouting as loudly as I could.”

The victim said he was struck repeatedly and his arms, legs and mouth were bound with gaffer tape.

The masked man then threatened him with the torch to force him to reveal his bank details.

The 53-year-old victim was a senior council employee – and, at the time of the attack, a keen amateur glamour photographer.

For more than a year, he had been enjoying photo sessions with Laura Colquhoun, a 17-year-old aspiring model, at his Edinburgh home.

He told the court he paid her £150 per session, and she regularly performed a sex act on him.

But the payments were not enough for Colquhoun or her scar-faced boyfriend Garry Faulds, 21.

They decided they could make far more from brutality and blackmail.

And when Colquhoun returned to the victim’s home on August 23 last year, she took Faulds with him.

He was dressed in a boiler suit and balaclava mask. Colquhoun got him into the house, and prosecutors said they punched the victim to the ground, bound him and dragged him into another room.

Faulds used the threat of the blowtorch to terrify the man into revealing passwords to his computers and bank accounts.

And he and Colquhoun told him they would destroy his reputation if he did not obey their commands.

Faulds, a member of an Orange flute band, told the victim he was a member of the Loyalist UDA, who could cause him serious harm.

And he threatened to tell the man’s employers that he had been taking illegal photos of underage girls.

The court heard that the victim has never been charged with any such offences.

Faulds tried in vain to log on to the victim’s online bank account, then forced him to call his bank to try

to get a new access code so the account could be unlocked. The attempt failed.

The vicim claimed he had a gun held to his head during the phone call.

He told the court: “It looked real enough. It didn’t look like a toy.”

But the jury found there was not enough evidence to support the claim that a firearm was used, and deleted the allegation from the charge.

The man claimed that Faulds also sat for a time in silence, “presumably just to frighten me”.

He added: “I must say it was quite effective.”

He also recalled that Faulds called him “a vile man”.

Faulds and Colquhoun used the victim’s stolen bank card and PIN number to withdraw £100 from a

cash machine.

They also robbed him of approximately £800 in cash, photographic equipment, a set of keys, a Royal Bank of Scotland smart card and smart card reader.

At one point, the court heard, Colquhoun spoke to Faulds while he was wearing the mask, asking him: “What are we going to do now, Garry?”

A few days after the attack, the victim went to his employers and told them what had happened. Police

were called, and Faulds and Colquhoun were quickly arrested.

They both denied robbing, assaulting and threatening to extort cash from the victim. Neither gave evidence.

The jury of nine women and six men took two hours and 40 minutes to find both accused guilty.

Colquhoun wept, shook and sucked her thumb as prosecutor David Taylor told the court she had no previous convictions.

The court heard that Faulds has a record for minor offences.

Temporary judge Paul Arthurson QC deferred sentence on both accused for reports.

He told them: “You have been convicted of a serious offence which will almost inevitably result in prison sentences.”

Faulds, a prisoner at Low Moss jail near Bishopbriggs, was remanded in custody to await sentence. Colquhoun was granted bail. Both will return to court on April 4 to learn their fate.

:lol:

Mad Garry.

Never knew he was capable of this, I played in the same band as him.

Although, it's nice to see the DR using his scar to describe him as some sort of thug, he was attacked when he was a teenager by a group of wanks, shame on the DR for using that against him.

Scar or no scar he is still a thug with a bird who is nothing more than an ugly prostitute.

thats true he was robbed when he was 13 and after he handed his jacket over the bastards who where all in their 20s smashed a bottle over his face badly scarring him. Just typical Daily Rhebel doing its best to bad mouth the club.

It does seem relatively accurate given the story, don't you think?

I don't to believe papers dramatise things a bit. But I don't know the answer to how accurate the story is. I don't really have an opinion on it, he's been found guilty so he'll get punished. That's it.

I don't trust the photographer here, I can't see the boyfriend being happy that his burd was sucking the heid aff another guy for cash regularly.

These guys don't pay a lot for shoots and sometimes the girls actually pay the photographer just for the opportunity to be discovered.

Photographer has probably said if she gives him sexual favours he will pay her more and get her more work and the boyfriend has found out and this is the result. Vast majority of these guys are sleazy cunts.

What he has been found guilty of is definitely thuggish, and if she has been 'performing sex acts' for £150 a week, then she kinda fits the profile.

Actually, I suppose most of us struggle to care, the victims seems like a pathetic little creep too and it all has bugger all to do with Rangers.

Every time someone gets arrested in Scotland this rags first thought is can we get a picture of him/her in a Rangers top. They probably have sub-editors trolling Facebook 24/7 trying to find pics of Rangers fans doing something wrong.

:lol: good old iPhone....though that said waking up next to the guy may be less of a shock in a way! At least you'd know what you'd be getting into! Judging that lassie based on her model shoot to what she actually looks like is quite frightening!
