A man kicked his mother’s partner on the shin in two separate incidents in one day.

Ben Smith, 22, of Chesterfield Road, North Shore, pleaded guilty to two offences of assault, resisting arrest and breaching bail.

He was bailed for pre-sentence reports by District Judge David Scanlon sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

He must not contact his mother’s partner or enter his home on Dickson Road as conditions of his bail.

The judge was told that on April 26 Smith kicked his victim on the shin in a Blackpool pub.

In another incident he

also kicked the victim on the shin again in his home.

Peter Manning, defending, said his client, who suffered from learning difficulties, had an alcohol problem.
