Bus ban for thigh groper

Midweek Sport - - AGONY SPECIAL -

A 49-YEAR-OLD Lu­ton man has been banned from sit­ting next to women on buses af­ter a judge de­scribed his be­hav­iour to women as “fright­en­ing and un­pleas­ant”.

The de­fen­dant had ear­lier ad­mit­ted nine charges of sex­ual as­sault on women trav­el­ling on buses be­tween Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber last year.

Judge Richard Foster gave Koom­son a two-year com­mu­nity or­der af­ter hear­ing that his as­saults on women he sat next to on buses in­volved vic­tims aged be­tween 16 and 60 years.

One of his vic­tims, a 16-year-old girl, was re­ported as say­ing to Koom­son in a loud voice: “Get your hand off my leg, you pae­dophile.”

The judge, sit­ting at Lu­ton Crown Court, also or­dered Koom­son to carry out 100 hours of un­paid work.
