A TULLIBODY man who attacked a shop worker in a racist incident has been given extra jail time.

Daniel Hutchison, of The Orchard, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court via video-link from prison to be sentenced on Thursday, October 14.

The 30-year-old admitted that on August 13, at Azad Grocers, Tullibody, he stole confectionery.

On August 14, at the same store, he adopted an aggressive attitude towards two workers there before shouting, swearing and making racially-offensive remarks.

He then struck out at a display, refused to leave and made threats.

Hutchison also admitted he assaulted one of the employees by pushing him, seizing him on the neck and body then attempting to push him to the ground.

Depute fiscal Rachel Wallace said the accused had threatened one of the staff, saying he would wait outside the shop for him.

When one of the staff tried to usher him out of the premises he was grabbed by the neck and wrist.

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Hutchison: "This was disgraceful behaviour."

He jailed him for eight months to run consecutively to his current sentence.

In September, Hutchison was jailed for eight months other offences.
