Most of the time when I hear people talk about solipsism, the people who believe it only care about themseleves. Nobody else matters because they don't exist. You can hurt other people and there won't be any consequence because you're the only one that matters. Now, with this mentality you'd think that solipists define themselves as their physical bodies.
I think what you're describing here is psychopathy (which only rarely leads to violence. Mostly it is simply a rather antisocial personality disorder). A psychopath considers his or her relationship with the self as supreme and disregards the needs of others in service to the self. Solipsism is the concept that the self is the only reality that can be truly known
beyond doubt. Everything within our experience may simply be an illusion and there is no way of quantifying this outside of our own experience. This does not mean that solipsists think that nothing but the self exists. Only that experience must have an entity (the self) to experience it but everything within the experience is less certain.
Subjective reality implies that nothing can exist or occur without being experienced (ie; the old tree-in-the-forest thing) and that experience manifests existence (ie; did my bowels exist before I shoved my head up my arse?)
