A MAN who committed a catalogue of crime including battering a bus driver and threatening to rape a police officer and his daughters will be spending Christmas in prison.
Kalvin Abram, 30, of Enfield Road, North Shore, pleaded guilty to 12 offences.
Those included assaulting a bus driver, violent behaviour in a police station, racially threatening behaviour and theft from shops.
Sue Crabb, prosecuting, told magistrates a bus driver said he was punched on the forearm and ribs after Abram argued with him on October 21.
She said he then behaved in a vile manner at Blackpool police headquarters after being arrested for stealing beef from a shop on November 24.
The prosecutor added: “He made horrific threats against officers and their families and threatened to rape a male officer and his daughters.
He was also threatening towards a Chinese woman in custody saying – “cocklepickers, go back to your own country.”
Peter Cave, defending, said his client, did not drink, had beaten heroin addiction and accepted he would go to prison.
Abram said he had pushed the bus driver in the stomach after not being allowed on the bus.
At the police station he had taken a large number of valium pills and had no recollection of what he did there.
He was sentenced to 348 days prison by Blackpool magistrates.
