But a hero dog walker confronted 24-year-old Hoey and overpowered him, leaving him bleeding and dazed, before police arrived and arrested him.
Hoey appeared at Liverpool Magistrates Court today sporting a black eye and with blood stains still covering his t-shirt. He was jailed for 18 weeks after pleading guilty to exposure, assault, criminal damage and possession of cannabis.
One witness statment from said Hoey had “his willy out” and made a lewd suggestion to her. One girl confronted him over the comment, angering Hoey into throwing a punch; Hoey then punched another 16-year-old girl to the face, giving her a split lip.
Angela Blackmore, prosecuting, said a man who was walking past then intervened, causing Hoey to launch an attack. But the court heard the newcomer was “much stronger” and easily overpowered him. Hoey will be spending the next 11 months in prison after being recalled on licence as a result of the new offences and will have to sign the sex offenders’ register for the next seven years.
