A MAN turned on a paramedic who had been sent to treat his eye injury.

Peter Seddon kicked out at the female paramedic and then tried to head-butt her in her ambulance, Blackpool magistrates heard.

Seddon, 28, of Charles Street, Blackpool admitted assaulting the paramedic

He also admitted two other assault charges, both on previous female partners.

The magistrates told Seddon he was a violent man who was not wanted in the town.

He was jailed for a total of 20 weeks and made the subject of restraining orders forbidding him to have contact with his victims.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said that Seddon head-butted a woman at her home after they argued when he asked her for money so he could get his mobile phone back from a pawn shop.

In the incident involving the paramedic, Seddon was being restrained by his own brother in the street.

Police were called and it was decided Seddon needed treatment to an eye injury.

Police restrained him by hand-cuffing him but when the paramedic tried to put safety belts around his legs for the journey to hospital he assaulted her. The third assault was on a woman he stayed with.

Robert Castle, defending, said: “My client has difficulties with his ability to relate. He is no longer in contact with his two ex partners, the relationships are at an end.”
