A Dewsbury man who urinated on a woman at a Drake concert at Manchester Arena has narrowly avoided jail.
Fauod Elhabbal, 27, was at the Drake concert with a friend on 11 February this year when he urinated on the leg of a woman sat in the seat in front on him.
Feeling the liquid she turned round to see him tucking his penis away and when she confronted him about what he had done, Elhabbal simply smirked at her.
Disgusted by his actions she alerted security staff who tried to eject Elhabbal from the arena. He became aggressive and officers were called and he was subsequently arrested.
After initially pleading not guilty, Elhabba, of Headfield Road, Dewsbury, was found guilty on August 14 and was sentenced at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on 31 August to 20 weeks’ imprisonment suspended for 12 months, and ordered to undertake 200 hours unpaid community work and pay £685 towards costs, compensation and the victim.
Insp Michelle Wedderburn of British Transport Police said: “We police the arena and this disgusting behaviour is certainly not something we have seen before.
“Urinating on some unsuspecting concert goer’s leg is vile and I hope that his appearance in court and subsequent suspended sentence teaches him a lesson and sends a strong message out that this sort of revolting behaviour won’t be tolerated.”
And his girlfriend, Emma Egan, 29, from Dewsbury, was also in trouble after attacking pop fan Gary Tann for berated Elhabba for urinating over the woman.
The ex-beauty therapist knocked back lager and then bundled Tann over a row of seats after he was ticked off for standing up as the American rap star came on stage.
Police later discovered she had been on licence from jail after she mowed down and killed a 55-year-old cyclist in a hit and run drink-driving smash.
She mowed down the cyclist while chasing another boyfriend at 69mph following a drunken row in Sheffield.
She was jailed in 2014 for four years but served only two.
Meanwhile dental nurse Mr Tann, who landed on his back on another row of seats after being shoved over by Egan, said in a statement to police after the concert he felt “too scared and frightened to go to another concert.
“The Drake concert was my first but it has put me off going out with people who are drinking because of what happened to me.”
At Manchester Magistrates’ Court, Egan was convicted of common assault after a trial. Despite being on parole she escaped jail after the court heard she had a “promising future” and was making “significant progress” with probation officials.
