Asda in Kettering.

A man who assaulted two Kettering security guards after being challenged over stealing has been handed a prison sentence.

Lukaz Jasionek, 28, was in Asda in Northfield Avenue on November 20 last year when he caught the attention of members of staff.

He appeared to be concealing goods and was challenged by security staff at about 7.35pm.

But Jasionek, of HMP Peterborough, lashed out and pushed one security worker before using a snapped bank card to scratch the hand of another.

Last week Jasionek appeared at Northampton Magistrates' Court having pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and a further charge of stealing electric razors worth £81.

Magistrates jailed him for a total of 10 weeks for the unprovoked attack.

He was also ordered to pay compensation of £50 to each security worker he assaulted.
