A woman felt "violated" when a man pulled off her religious headscarf - hijab - as she walked along a north Wales street pushing a pushchair.

Mold Crown Court heard that Damien French, 21, of Rhyl, had a previous conviction for animal cruelty when he fed a live zoo rabbit to an alligator.

French admitted racially aggravated common assault and a racially aggravated public order offence.

Adjourning sentence, the judge warned French he could still face prison.
