Man fined under £500 for racially aggravated assault and harassment in Milton Keynes


A 25-year-old man from Milton Keynes will have to pay a total of £495 after he was convicted of aggravated assault and racial harassment.

Daniel Evans, aged 25, of Tarnis Close, was convicted at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on May 20.

Evans pleaded guilty to one count of racially aggravated common assault and one count of racially aggravated intentional harassment.

Evans committed the offences at 1am on April 20, when he was asked to leave by a member of staff at The Secklow Hundred public house, in Milton Keynes.

Evans then racially abused the member of staff and tried to hit him. He was arrested and charged on April 20.

For the first count he was ordered to pay£50 compensation, received a £20 victim surcharge, £85 court costs and £125 fine. He was fined £215 for the second offence.

PC Dawn Washburn said: “The behaviour which Evans demonstrated on this night was illegal.

“Racially aggravated assault and harassment is unacceptable and there will be consequences for this kind of behaviour.

“Using racially aggravated language is an offence and this fine should act as a warning to others who may not fully consider the consequences of their actions.

“This kind of illegal behaviour could result in a very expensive night out.”
