An Iranian asylum seeker was told by people that he met in a nightclub that the way to approach a woman was to grope them, it has been claimed.
Mohammed Bagherifard, 30, is due to be sentenced for sex offences after he rubbed a woman's rear at his hostel Angel Lodge in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
He also fondled another woman while she was out walking with a friend. In another incident he touched another woman's bottom and slid his hand down her leg.
Mohammed Bagherifard, 30, claims he was told that groping women was the way to communicate with them in the UK
She did not report what he had done but when he saw Bagherifard do the same thing to another woman she reported him to police.
His lawyer, Malcolm Nowell, said at Calderdale Magistrates' Court that Bagherifard had arrived in the UK from a country with very strict laws.
He said: 'He was given information by people in nightclubs as to how to communicate with females and merely put that into action.
'He now recognizes just how wrong that was and is now more aware of how to conduct himself in this country.
'He is anxious to show he can be a responsible member of this society.'
Bagherifard admitted three charges of sexual assault on females and one charge of common assault on a male.
Prosecutor Lisa Beadle said Bagherifard had no ties to the UK and was a sexual predator and if given bail he might flee or commit further offences.
He was remanded in custody to appear on September 9 when he will be sentenced.
What a load of old bo..ox ... the filthy b..tard knew exactly what he was doing!! - Well done to the prosecutor (Lisa Beadle) involved in this case for seeing 'it' for exactly what 'it' is and remanding 'it' in custody ... let's hope that when the case goes to trial 'it's' application for asylum will be firmly DENIED!! - Fx
