A drunk man revealed his chest and dragon tattoo when he terrified a mother and her young daughter in a Bangor shop, a court heard.

Foul-mouthed Richard Crane, aged 49, of no fixed address, but from Deganwy, licked a £5 note, pushed it on the girl’s forehead, and kissed her mum during their ordeal, a district judge was told.

He admitted two common assaults and a public order offence in March.

But Crane appeared in custody after being released from Berwyn prison at Wrexham on Tuesday and then becoming abusive and spitting at a glass screen at Colwyn Bay probation service offices.

Prosecutor Helen Tench said a worker had been petrified and police were called.

But Crane, who admitted breaching a criminal behaviour order, used the back of a police vehicle as a toilet.

Andrew Hutchinson, defending at Llandudno court, said Crane wished to apologise for his behaviour and accepted he was a nightmare when drunk.

Judge Gwyn Jones jailed him for six months and made a five-year restraining order to protect the assault victims.

The judge said they would have been terrified.

At the probation service offices Crane had been “offensive and totally out of control.”
