TWO-timer Scott Mokler was so desperate to prove his love for his girlfriend that he hatched a plot to attack a woman he had slept with.

He planned to strip Kirstie Brand naked - and bought a pair of scissors to cut away her clothes - and he punched her in the face, knocking her to the floor.

His girlfriend was involved in the plan, and she shouted and swore as Ms Brand was attacked, Fenland magistrates were told.

"He told police he would have done anything to prove his love," said prosecutor William Powell.

"But for the appearance of a witness, it was planned to strip her naked, they bought a pair of scissors to cut away her clothes if she struggled."

Mokler, 19, admitted assaulting Ms Brand in March on August 4, causing actual bodily harm.

Presiding magistrate Michael Sullivan told Mokler: "I have been a magistrate for 15 years, and this is the most disturbing assault I have seen.

"You planned an attack on a poor girl you had used to fill your bored moments.

"You should realise that only because of technical matters, and the state of the prisons at the present time, that we are not going to jail you today. You are very lucky.

"There are other ways to show your love than attack an innocent third party."

Solicitor Anita Waterman said the offence was "serious and unattractive," and Mokler had written a letter of apology to his victim.

Mokler, of Bellairs, Sutton, was given a two-year community order with requirements for supervision and 240 hours of unpaid work. He must pay £200 compensation and £100 costs.

The court was told that Mokler's girlfriend was dealt with by a reprimand or caution, and not through the courts.
