A LOWESTOFT man who sexually assaulted two women while they were on a night out in the town has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Antonio Freitas Correia grabbed the first woman as she was walking along London Road South, Lowestoft to meet up with some friends.

Lindsay Cox, prosecuting, told Ipswich Crown Court yesterday (Monday) that Freitas Correia had grabbed the woman and despite her verbally remonstrating with him he touched her on two further occasions.

Shortly afterwards, Freitas Correia approached another woman from behind and grabbed her.

The 27-year-old defendant, of London Road South, Lowestoft, admitted two offences of sexual assault and was given a six month prison sentence suspended for two years.

He was also ordered to do 200 hours unpaid work in the community and made the subject of a six month curfew between the hours of 7pm and 4am.

He was ordered to pay £1,500 costs and ordered to sign on the sex offenders register for seven years.

Sentencing him, Judge John Holt described the offences as “nasty and frightening”.

Jude Durr, for Freitas Correia, said his client had no previous convictions and was extremely drunk on the night in question.
