A MAN who entered a bank drunk and tried to take his clothes off has appeared in court.
Mohammed Qayyum appeared before Huddersfield Magistrates’ Court yesterday. The 33-year-old was hauled before the court after breaching an Asbo made by magistrates on August 27 last year.
The order prohibited Qayyum from being drunk in a public place in South Kirklees.
But District Judge Jonathan Bennett heard that he broke this order on October 24 when he entered the Lloyds TSB bank on Westgate.
Linda Fowler, prosecuting, said he was drunk and refused requests by staff to leave and instead took his shoes off.
“Staff were uncomfortable about the defendant’s behaviour. They asked him to leave but he continued to remove clothing.”
Ian Whiteley, defending, said Qayyum was a chronic alcoholic. He was made homeless and lost his wife and children as a result of that.
Judge Bennett adjourned Qayyum’s case for three weeks for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.
