Guilty of GBH and sexual assault on woman of 19 in Radford
JURORS have convicted a man of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman he met in the street, after hitting her round the head with a brick.
Jermaine Robinson denied grievous bodily harm and sexual assault but was convicted by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.
He met his victim in Alfreton Road, Radford, after she told him about a man in a car who would not leave her alone in the early hours of June 26.
She got talking to Robinson and they walked off and had a drink together behind some shops. After a while, Robinson tried to kiss her neck and asked her for sex but she refused.

The court heard that he suddenly leapt down steps and attacked her, punching her and knocking her unconscious with a brick. She came round to find herself at the top of the steps being sexually assaulted.
"He [Robinson] tried to say to her that a random person came over and hit both of them with a brick," prosecutor Andrew Vout told the trial.
The woman, however, remembered what had happened and told him she was not stupid and that she needed a doctor.
She ran down the steps and into the street, where she saw a man called Simon Johnson riding by on his bike on the way to work.
"He said she was bloody and in distress," said Mr Vout. "Simon Johnson tried to talk to her. Robinson emerged and said 'she's been robbed'."
Mr Johnson rode on and said he was calling the police and Robinson allegedly replied: "Phone them, then".
One of the woman's phones was destroyed by Robinson but another was intact and she called police. She "tearfully" tried to tell the operator about what had happened and said that she had been hit with a brick.
Robinson ran away along Tennyson Street, Radford. The woman was taken to hospital and needed 11 stitches to a head wound.
Jurors convicted Robinson, 27, of Basford Road, Basford, of the two charges yesterday but could not reach a verdict on a third of supplying the victim with cocaine. The judge ordered this to lie on file.
Robinson was remanded in custody for psychiatric and pre-sentence reports. He will be sentenced on December 20.
