A sex pest on a mobility scooter has been banned from approaching ANY females in public places.Marshall Hart, 46, rammed his vehicle into the 20-year-old victim’s shins and then sexually assaulted her in the street, bruising her arm and breast. Then he launched a racist tirade against her partner while chasing them on the scooter through the Bolton town centre.
Hart, who attended the hearing without his scooter, was initially travelling in the opposite direction of the victims before he muttered the word “pervert” under his breath and began to follow them. After overtaking the couple, he performed a U-turn and attempted to snatch the woman’s purse before assaulting her.
Hart, of Bolton, denied sexual assault but was found guilty by the town’s magistrates. He smiled as he was handed a 26-week prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, as well as being given a three-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and made to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for seven years.
