Sick fiend slashed victim’s wrist and forced him to perform sex acts before posting video to Facebook

A knife thug forced his victim to strip off and carry out sex acts on himself before posting a video of the attack on Facebook.

Stephen Fullerton, 36, had been friends with the 39-year-old man but slashed him on the wrist before putting him through the degrading ordeal amid accusations of unpaid debts.

The victim was then locked in a cupboard overnight before escaping the next morning while the thug was asleep.

Fullerton, from Larkhall, Lanarkshire, was arrested after the shocking footage emerged on Facebook.

At Hamilton Sheriff Court yesterday, he was jailed for three years after admitting assault and intentionally causing his victim to participate in sexual activity in February.

Michael Macintosh, prosecuting, said: “Footage shows the complainer entirely naked, standing up from a bed saying ‘I’m begging you please.’

“The complainer is evidently very distressed under duress before the accused asks, ‘Is that good?’ and the complainer replies, ‘No’.”

Alan Gravelle, defending, said Fullertong took “full responsibility” and called the footage “disturbing”.

Sheriff Thomas Millar ordered Fullerton to be placed on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely.
