At Swindon Magistrates Court on Tuesday (27/10), Matthew Hutton, aged 47, of Claremont Crescent, Newbury, pleaded guilty to harassment without violence, sending communications conveying indecent or offensive messages, ABH, criminal damage and common assault of an emergency worker.
In August this year, Wiltshire Police were called to an address in Royal Wootton Bassett following reports of Hutton breaching bail conditions linked to an assault and criminal damage offences in 2019.
He was arrested on August 9 and taken to Gablecross police station where he became aggressive and made homophobic comments to the detention officer before attempting to headbutt them and spit at them. He was subsequently arrested for assault on an emergency worker.
“Nobody should ever be made to feel that way and harassment can have a serious impact on the victim’s mental health as well as their overall wellbeing and is why we take these types of offenses extremely seriously.
