Mr Gavan was remanded in custody after pleading guilty at the High Court in Glasgow and he is due to be sentenced next month at Edinburgh High Court. The Crown narrated that this attack was related to a long standing family feud. Another male said to be with Mr Gavan at the time of the offence had his not guilty pleas accepted.
Mr Gavan was also facing a charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice but a not guilty plea was accepted to that charge. The Court was shown CCTV of the incident which showed a young girl being reversed over. Det Insp Peter Sharp stated: “This incident which unfolded in the afternoon of Saturday 24 March in Castlemilk was something which will no doubt stay in the minds of the young victims for a long time.”
