A MAN who grabbed a woman's breast while exposing himself to her has been handed a community order.

Mohammed Rahnan, of Watery Road, Wrexham, appeared at Mold Crown Court on Thursday for sentence.

The 48-year-old had previously admitted an offence of sexual assault, which took place in Wrexham last year.

Mark Connor, prosecuting, said on the day of the offence, Rahnan approached the victim and grabbed her breast over her clothing.

Her smirked and partially pulled his pants and underwear down, exposing himself, and asked her: "Have you seen this?"

He then placed his hand under her shirt, grabbing her breast again but over her bra.

At this point the victim pushed him away, at which he smirked again.

The woman was left shaking and crying.

When he was interviewed by police, the defendant initially denied sexually assault, but later pleaded guilty to the offence.

In a statement read to the court, the victim said: "When this happened I was so shocked.

"I didn't know what to think.

"I couldn't stop shaking and crying all the time and I couldn't stop thinking about it."

She said generally she was a "very trusting" person, but the incident had made her "more fearful."

Elen Owen, defending, said: "What Mr Rahnan wishes me to say is how sorry he is to this woman for what he did.

"His expression of shame and remorse is accepted by the probation service as genuine.

"This was an entirely impulsive act - there was no planning."

Judge Nicola Saffman told the defendant: "At 48 years old, you're a man of positive previous good character.

"You've lost that by carrying out this crime."

The Judge handed down a 12 month community order with 40 days of rehabilitation work, as well as ordering the defendant to pay a £95 victim surcharge.

Rahnan was also made subject to the notification requirements for five years.
