Woman stepped in to help teenager.
She tried to get the 14-year-old, who she knew, into her car but Nicholas Andrew Lyon stopped her.
Flintshire Magistrates' Court at Mold heard the Good Samaritan then asked a local farmer to help.
Together, they tried to get the girl into the car but Lyon kicked her legs from under her and jumped on top of her.
The farmer was able to grab Lyon and pull him away from the girl, who was in a very distressed state when she got into the car and was taken home.
Lyon admitted assault on the basis he tripped up the girl, causing her facial injuries.
The 22-year-old of Allt y Plas in Pentre Halkyn, was bailed but was later involved in a burglary in the village.
Justin Espie, prosecuting, said Malcolm Davies was at the home of his sister and saw Lyon there. Lyon was told Mr Davies was not returning home that night.
But the following day Mr Davies found the house ransacked.
A hi-fi and speakers were stolen and found the following day in Lyon's home.
Lyon told police he committed the offence with another man who he refused to name, and denied he caused any of the damage himself.
Magistrates agreed the case should be sent to the crown court for sentence and further remanded Lyon in custody.
Alan Bayliss, defending, said Lyon started to tackle his alcohol problem when he was arrested for a breach of his bail.
He was in custody for a week which he found an unpleasant experience and it was a salutary lesson for him.
The pre-sentence report put forward a positive way of dealing with his problems, to address the causes of his misbehaviour
