Racist jailed for sick attack
A racist yob is behind bars following an attack on a man in Motherwell.
The 17-year-old, who can’t be named for legal reasons, acted in a racially aggravated manner in Grange Court on August 19 by shouting and swearing at a man and directing racial remarks towards him.
The teenager then assaulted the same man by punching him on the head and body, seizing him by the hair and forcing him to the ground.
The yob also repeatedly punched his victim on the head and body and tried to bite him.
A charge of breaching bail was also admitted by the teenager.
At Hamilton Sheriff Court, he was sentenced to 160 days behind bars.
