A THUG who abused and attacked his neighbours has been ordered to clean up his act.

George Walter assaulted two women and one man in Eastbourne.

The 26-year-old launched an attack that left one of his victims injured during the “nasty incident”.

Separately when police searched his home they found him in possession of pepper spray.

Walter appeared before Hastings Magistrates’ Court where he admitted three counts of assault.

He also admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour likely to provoke fear of immediate unlawful violence.

The court noted he had used “threatening language to his neighbours” and that there was an “injury caused”.

The incident happened in December last year at Seaside in Eastbourne.

Walter, of Cavendish Place, Eastbourne, was drunk during the incident, the court heard.

Magistrate Jeremy Betts imposed a 20-week suspended prison sentence, and ordered the defendant to pay a total of £500 in compensation between the three victims.

He must also complete six months of treatment for alcohol dependency with the Change, Grow, Live programme.
