A PENSIONER has been charged with battering his wife and another woman on Boxing Day, as well as using a walking stick to threaten a man.

Raymond McDonald, 67, is alleged to have assaulted Tricia McDonald and Laura McGrath in Inchinnan.

He is also said to have acted aggressively, shouted and brandished his walking stick at Michael McGrath while behaving in a threatening or abusive way at a property in the village’s Allands Avenue on Boxing Day.

The details emerged when McDonald appeared in the dock at Paisley Sheriff Court to face three charges.

McDonald pleaded not guilty during the hearing, where he was represented by defence solicitor Abdullah Hamid.

Sheriff Colin Pettigrew released him on bail, with special conditions banning him from approaching or contacting his wife or going to their daughter’s home, where she will stay until the case against him comes to an end.

McDonald was originally going to be released on bail to their daughter’s address, but was allowed to remain in his own home in Glasgow after Sheriff Pettigrew was told the property had been specially adapted for him due to his disabilities.
