Leeds Greggs assault: Man jailed for assault on girl, 8
A man has been jailed for eight weeks after admitting assaulting an eight-year-old girl in a Leeds bakery shop.
Adnan Maqsood, 34, of Windermere Road, Bradford pleaded guilty to common assault.
The girl was in Greggs at The Headrow in February with her mother and brother when she was assaulted while her mother was at the counter.
Maqsood was originally charged with sexual assault, but was cleared at Leeds Crown Court.
He is currently serving an 15-month prison term for an earlier separate stalking offence and his new sentence will be served concurrently, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
'Face the consequences'
Det Insp Steve Greenbank thanked members of the public who helped identify Maqsood following the release of CCTV footage of the incident.
"We hope the victim and her family will take some comfort from knowing that he has now had to face the consequences of his actions," said Mr Greenbank.
"We also hope his conviction will act as a deterrent to others and give victims of similar offences the confidence to come forward."
