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.

A charge of breach­ing bail was also ad­mit­ted by the teenager.

At Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court, he was sen­tenced to 160 days be­hind bars.
