A MILLOM builder who punched a man in the head after a nine-year feud has been banned from contacting his victim.
Craig Daniel Heasley admitted assault when he appeared before Furness Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said: “Kevin Robinson was the victim in this case and there have been problems between them for about nine years.
“On the day in question Mr Robinson was on his motorbike and went into Wharton’s Garage, Duke Street, Millom, to buy a newspaper.
“He went into the shop and when he came out he was approached by the defendant and assaulted.
“He was shoved and pushed and punched in the head, but he was wearing his helmet.
“After the assault Mr Robinson went back into the shop and spoke to the assistant who said it would have all been captured on CCTV.
“He said it was a good job he was wearing his helmet or he could have been really hurt.
“The defendant told police he had approached him about an incident that happened on Boxing Day, last year.
“He said that Mr Robinson had attempted to spit on him through his helmet and he had retaliated.”
Heasley, of Queen Street, Millom, admitted assault by beating on March 28.
Miss Kath McAteer, defending, said the animosity between them had gone back a few years.
She added: “Normally he will just ignore Mr Robinson’s insults and just walk away. He did retaliate on this occasion.
“As far as a restraining order goes he would be overjoyed not to have any dealings with Kevin Robinson again.”
The 33-year-old self-employed builder was fined £220, and told to pay £85 court costs and a £22 victim surcharge.
He was also put under a two-year restraining order and told not to contact Mr Robinson by any means.
