A 46-year-old man has been found guilty of racially abusing and assaulting someone at Stevenage railway station.
Richard Turner, 46, had denied the racially aggravated harassment and assault of his victim at the station on December 5 last year.
But Stevenage magistrates found him guilty of both counts on Wednesday, and have handed Turner a year-long community order.
Turner, of Stone Close in Pevensey, near Eastbourne, must pay £100 in compensation to his victim, as well as £620 in prosecution costs and £85 surcharge.
The bench, chaired by David Knight, also ordered him to complete a rehabilitation activity requirement of up to 30 days.
