Hassan Lakhlifi, 20, formerly of Collyhurst Avenue, South Shore, now of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to assaulting his mother.

He also admitted breaching a restraining order not to contact his mum or go within 100 metres of her address in Squires Gate Lane.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said Lakhlifi was made the subject of a one-year restraining order which prohibited him from contacting his mother or going near her home on September 28.

On October 15 he went to her address and then threw a stone which hit her in the back.

When interviewed, Lakhlifi said he did not remember being at his mum’s. He had drunk some beer and smoked some cannabis.

At the time of the offence he was on a suspended prison sentence for breaching the order.

Stephen Duffy, defending, said his client had mental health problems.

Lakhlifi went to his mum’s because he had argued with his partner.

He was sentenced to 56 days’ jail in a young offenders’ institution and ordered to pay a £180 court charge and £80 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.
