A MAN must undergo treatment for alcohol dependency after a series of attacks on police officers.

Simon Paul Robinson, 39, of Dunsford Avenue, Bierley, appeared before Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court to be sentenced.

He was charged with three counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker.

The three offences happened on March 25 this year – two in Bradford’s Centenary Square and one at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Court documents said of each charge: “The court finds that the offence was aggravated by being committed against an emergency worker acting in the exercise of functions as such.”

A community order was made and the requirements must be complied with by June 12 next year.

As part of the order, Robinson will have treatment for alcohol dependency for a period of six months.

He will also be subject to a curfew until July 25 this year and it will be electronically monitored. He must stay at his home address in Bierley between 10pm and 6am.

The curfew was uplifted from two weeks to a total of six weeks.

Robinson will also have to undertake a maximum of 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

He must pay a total of £150 in compensation.
