A SOUTHAMPTON man has been jailed for cycling at an elderly woman and then pushing her into a pile of mud.

Jack Stott shouted abuse at a man at Orion Close, Southampton, and rode his bicycle at a woman in her 70s before braking so hard the bike touched her shins.

He then pushed her into a pile of mud, leaving her with a bruised hand and wrist, Southampton Crown Court was told.

Stott, 19, also of Orion Close, was sentenced to four months in a young offenders' institute for actual bodily harm and three months for common assault.

The two terms will run concurrently with a three-year sentence he was handed for sexual assault and sexually assaulting a child under 13.

The first incident occurred in Shirley at around 8am on December 1 last year.

Stott cycled past the victim, a 24-year-old woman, and then cycled back to sexually assault her over her clothing.

The second incident took place at Wimpson Lane at around 8am on December 14 last year.

The victim, aged 12, was walking with a friend when Stott wrapped his arms around her and pinned her to the ground before sexually assaulting her over her clothing. Her friend was able to help her get free.

DC Keith Evans, who led the investigation, said: “These awful incidents happened in broad daylight and have had a lasting impact on both victims.

“Stott is a dangerous sexual predator and now he is behind bars.

“I would like to commend his victims for their bravery throughout the investigation and hopefully this sentence shows our dedication to removing dangerous sexual predators from our community."
