Teenager on assault charge

A SCARBOROUGH teenager has appeared in court charged with assaulting a woman.

Lewis Alan William Jasper, 19, of Esplanade Road, admitted the assault, which took place in St Thomas Street on October 21.

Martin Butterworth, prosecuting, explained that this was a domestic incident which had been captured on CCTV.

He asked that this footage be made available to the bench before Jasper was sentenced.

Ian Brickman, mitigating, asked for reports to be prepared as it was uncertain whether or not his client would be suitable for unpaid work. The matter was adjourned until February 1.
