A man in Wales punched his neighbour and hurled horrific homophobic abuse at him after allegedly assaulting his partner in what the courts called a “nasty situation”.
Andrew James Harrison, 43, admitted the assault by beating Jack William David Jones on July 22 this year.
The attack left Jones with a cut upper lip after Harrison beat his neighbour and called him a “faggot” and a “queer”, reported NorthWalesLive.
Prosecutors accused Harrison of assaulting Jones’ partner Adele Christian, the North-East Wales Magistrates Court in Mold, Flintshire, heard.
Harrison came out of his house at Maes Ten, Cyamau and challenged Jones to a brawl.
Prosecutor John Wilde told the court: “The defendant said to him, ‘It’s all your fault you f*****g faggot.’
“He then hit him in the face and called him a ‘f*****g queer.’
“Jones was cut on his upper lip. The defendant didn’t deny the incident.”
However, Harrison expressed remorse for what had happened.
Moreover, Wilde argued that the “homophobic aspect” of the attack aggravated the incident further.
Magistrates judges called the incident a “nasty situation”.
