Ross Platt aged 44, who had 15 previous convictions for violent offences, pled guilty to assaulting a 14 year old girl and was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment in addition to serving the unexpired portion of a previous conviction following his release on licence.
It was narrated that Mr Platt had believed the girl had been filming him vandalising a shop with luminous hair dye. Mr Platt shouted at the girl, kicked her to her body and demanded that she put her phone down. Mr Platt thereafter proceeded to spray the hairspray covering the girls face and made off.
