A MAN who believed he had a grievance with a takeaway owner kicked in the shop window after watching the owner lock up.

Blackburn magistrates heard Mohammed Akram turned to the owner and said; "What are you going to do d*******?"

Akram, 45, of Gough Lane, Bamber Bridge, pleaded guilty to criminal damage to a window at Dixie Chicken, Church Street, Accrington.

He was ordered to pay £200 compensation and £85 costs.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said Jahninger Kareem, the owner, was in Dixie Chicken in the early hours. Akram came in asking why he was banned and became abusive when he was told to leave.

"Mr Kareem had locked up and was walking to his car when the defendant kicked the window causing it to smash," said Miss Allan.

Scott Parker, defending, said his client apologised for his behaviour.

"He felt he had been taken advantage of by Mr Kareem who had lent him some money at an extortionate rate of interest," said Mr Parker.

"He caused the damage but didn't leave the scene."

Mr Parker said Akram was living in Accrington at the time but now lived in a facility where he received assistance with his mental impairment.
