Robin Asquith has been placed on a curfew by magistrates in Doncaster

Records show that Asquith acted in a threatening manner towards another person, causing them to fear that they may be subject to violence, in Doncaster on March 3 this year.

He admitted committing a similar offence in the town on May 8 when he appeared before the court.

Magistrates placed him on an electrically monitored curfew for eight weeks, meaning he must remain inside at his own home from 8pm to 7am each night until October 28.

He must also pay £150 in compensation to the person he assaulted.
