Normanton man assaulted nurses at Royal Derby Hospital

A Derby man attacked a number of nurses while he was at the Royal Derby Hospital including one of them twice.

Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court heard how Niamat Khan’s first set of offences took place on May 13.

On that occasion, the 24-year-old damaged a blood pressure monitoring machine before then going on to assault three different health care professionals.

Four days later, on May 17, Khan found himself back at the same hospital where he assaulted one of the nurses he’d attacked earlier that week along with two others.

And on that day he also sexually touched a woman when he was at the Radbourne Unit.

Khan, of Reeves Road, Normanton, pleaded guilty to sexual touching, criminal damage and six counts of assaulting an emergency worker.

District Judge Jonathan Taaffe jailed him for 14 weeks, fined him £200 and ordered him to pay a total of £250 in compensation, telling him “doctors and nurses will be protected and any assault upon a health care professional will lead to immediate custody”.
