Man made rape threat before robbery in Dufftown

A man threatened to rape a 71-year-old woman before robbing her in Moray, a court has heard.

Ronald Green, 22, admitting attacking the woman in Dufftown before escaping with money in June this year.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard the victim lived alone in an isolated farmhouse, and the incident had a "considerable impact" on her.

Lord Pentland called for a background ahead of sentencing in the "appalling" case.
