A WINCHESTER man has been jailed for 40 weeks for a string of attacks.

Christopher Gwyn Peake, 40, of Christchurch Road, has a history of assaulting emergency workers, a court heard.

Peake admitted threatening and assaulting PC Rakim Ahmed and it was racially and religiously motivated.

He also pleaded guilty to assaulting Gintaras Sausonis and APS Dan Baines as well as stealing a macaroni cheese hot food box from Pret a Manger.

The offences triggered a suspended sentence imposed in December 2019 for attacking a policeman.

Peake was also ordered to pay a £128 victim surcharge.
