Curfew for chef after bus attack.

A MAN accused of repeatedly punching a former work colleague on a late-night bus has been ordered to obey a 7pm-7am curfew for a month.

Bryan Austin, 26, an unemployed chef, of Arvon Avenue, Llandudno, must also do 100 hours unpaid work.

He will also have to take part in five days of activities as directed by the probation service, and pay pounds 100 compensation and pounds 60 costs.

He admitted common assault at Llandudno magistrates court yesterday.

Prosecutor James Neary told magistrates there was ill-feeling between Austin and Lee Nicholson and the defendant had previously threatened to "get" the victim.

Mr Neary said the attack was "wholly unprovoked." Mr Nicholson had a split lip and bruising and went by ambulance to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Bodelw yddan.

A police constable on patrol at Llandudno Junction had stopped the bus and arrested Austin after witnessing the assault.

The prosecution didn't accept Austin's claim that Mr Nicholson had been winding him up.

The court heard that Austin's relationship had ended the day before. He was upset and had drunk a dozen pints of lager.

Gwyndaf Pari, defending, said there was ill-feeling because unfounded rumours were spread to cause difficulties in the relationship between Austin and his then girlfriend.
