A man has been jailed for 8 weeks following for a racially aggravated assault.

Lee Mccracken, aged 37 of Summerfield Crescent, Birmingham pleaded guilty to assaulting Akiel Khan last December.

He was imprisoned for 8 weeks for the offence which caused ‘psychological harm and distress caused to the victim’.

Birmingham Magistrates' Court heard how a member of the public tried to stop Mccracken but he continued in a 'prolonged assault'.

The offence was committed whilst under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Mccracken had earlier pleaded not guilty. He was also told to pay £100 compensation.
