A man has walked free from court after admitting to sexually assaulting a woman in Gravesend.
Craig Graham, 27, approached the woman in her early 20s in an alleyway leading to Cedar Avenue on the afternoon of April 2.
She did not know him but he engaged her in conversation and then, when she tried to walk past him, Graham grabbed her wrists and leaned forward to kiss her.
"The woman was not harmed but was understandably shaken up by the episode."
Graham was arrested at his home in Gravesend on April 7.
He was charged and remanded in custody.
After serving four months in jail on remand, Graham was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on August 15 where he was given a further four months prison sentence, suspended for two years.
He must also sign the Sex Offenders’ Register, complete 100 hours of unpaid work and was subjected to an 18-month probation supervision order.
