Jelic was found guilty of a string of offences, including sexual assault, following a trial at Sheffield Crown Court in October last year

Luca Jelic, aged 29, of Scotland Street, was found guilty of sexual assault, three counts of criminal damage, possession of a Class A drug and assault after a trial in October last year. 

 

Judge David Dixon is due to sentence Jelic for his crimes during a hearing at Sheffield Crown Court tomorrow. 

The police officer Jelic assaulted told jurors how Jelic began groping her while she and her colleague were on the floor, attempting to restrain him outside a block of flats in Scotland Street, Sheffield city centre on April 27 last year.

 

 

'I couldn't get his hands off me,' said the woman, adding: 'It felt like he was trying to penetrate me through my trousers. Both of us were trying to get his hands away.'

'As soon as I would get one of his hands off my crotch area, the other one would replace it. He continued that behaviour for what felt like a long time.'  'He made sexual comments throughout the incident,' she continued.

 

 

When the two female officers arrived on the scene, they found Jelic naked from the waist down, brandishing a For Sale sign at them, the court heard. 

He was under the influence of the Class A drug, MDMA, at the time of the offence.
