Sheffield Magistrates’ Court heard on January 22 how Algerian Mohammed Mufta, aged 27, of The Archer Project, in Sheffield, admitted harassing the man after repeatedly visiting his home on Whirlowdale Road, Millhouses, between January 1 and 5.

Mark Hughes, prosecuting, told a previous hearing the complainant helps asylum seekers and had helped Mufta but the defendant kept visiting and behaving erratically.

Mufta, who has been homeless, pleaded guilty to harassment and has admitted three thefts, damaging a mattress and a cell, and has admitted failing to surrender to custody and breaching a conditional discharge.
