Cambridge man jailed after spitting at women and punching a child

A man who committed unprovoked attacks on women and children has been sentenced.

Cambridge man jailed after spitting at women and punching a child. Raoul Papp, 27, started a string of attacks last October in Monkfield Lane, Cambridge.

Papp assaulted one woman, spat at two others and punched a child.

He kicked off his crime spree by spitting in a woman’s face and, when she challenged him, he spat again before punching her in the face.

Later, he then moved on to a 13-year-old boy who was riding a bicycle.

He punched him in the face causing a nosebleed and two chipped teeth. He proceeded to spit at another woman while shouting “that’s coronavirus for you”.

Papp’s fourth target was a 14-year-old girl who he spat at but missed.

He admitted to common assault of an emergency worker, two counts of actual bodily harm and two counts of common assault. At Cambridge Crown Court last Friday Papp, from Greenhaze Lane, Great Cambourne, was jailed for three years.

DC Katie Housham said after sentencing “Papp launched vile attacks against innocent members of the public, including children, in broad daylight. This obscene and violent behaviour was completely unacceptable and I am pleased he will now serve time behind bars for his actions.” Details of the victims have not been released.
