Mohammed Ali, 34, verbally abused cleaning staff at about 6.30pm on 6 March, before urinating on the security shutters of John Lewis.
When security staff approached Ali to confront him about his behaviour he was again racially abusive. He was escorted out of the shopping centre where he spat on one of the members of staff and continued to be abusive.

Officers attended the scene and Ali, of the High Street, Peterborough, was arrested. He was charged with a racially aggravated public order offence, possession of a bladed article in a public place and assault causing actual bodily harm.
He was sentenced to six months in prison for each of the three offences, to run consecutively.
