A man has pleaded guilty in court to two burglaries in St Ann’s and to a charge of assault by beating.

Kadeem Callum Brown, 25, of no fixed address, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Tuesday 9 October 2018).

The court heard that Brown was disturbed by the occupant after breaking into a house in Ball Street at about 1.13pm on Monday (8 October 2018).

The victim chased after Brown after he ran out the back door with two rucksacks. Brown dropped the bags during the chase but the victim managed to grab hold of him before a scuffle ensued.

Brown hit the victim in the face with his elbow and punched him a few times as he tried to escape.

After the victim lost his grip Brown ran off towards a supermarket but the victim chased after him again and managed to grab him.

Brown assaulted the victim again but he managed to keep hold of him until police arrived and arrested Brown. The victim suffered minor injuries during the incident.

The stolen items, which included a jewellery box, were recovered and returned.

The court heard that Brown had also broken into a property in Hawkridge Gardens on August 13, 2018. The occupant returned home from work to find her kitchen window had been smashed and a number of items had been taken including a laptop, television and mobile phone.

Blood recovered from the window’s edge matched Brown’s DNA profile and fingerprints found at the scene were a match for Brown’s.

Following his court appearance yesterday Brown was remanded in custody to re-appear for sentencing on 30 October 2018.
