It was more than two years ago but when Matthew Larrington confronted a teenage girl and accused her of keying his car, he left her feeling “incredibly scared” and police described his behaviour as “absolutely shocking”. He shouted abuse at her, threatened her, and grabbed her by the shoulders before kneeing her in her face.

Justice has caught up with him and he has been jailed.

Larrington, 29, was walking along Churchfield Road in Walton, Peterborough, at about 6pm on Saturday, 25 September 2021, when he noticed the 14-year-old girl, who was walking on the other side of the road with friends, stop and look at herself in a car window.

Larrington began shouting and falsely accusing her of keying the car.

The victim continued to walk with her friends towards the park in Mounsteven Avenue, while Larrington shouted abuse.

At the park, Larrington chased her and made threats before cornering her and grabbing her by the shoulders before kneeing her in the face.
