A Muslim convert found guilty of knocking a schoolboy unconscious for cuddling his girlfriend has had his sentence adjourned.

Michael Coe, 35, of Devenish Road, Greenwich, will return to Southwark Crown Court on Monday.

The Anjem Choudary associate was found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and battery by a jury at the court in August.

Coe, who is 6ft 1in and weighs 16 and a half stone, is facing a “substantial” jail term after attacking a 16-year-old boy cudding his girlfriend at a bus stop in Wilson Road, Upton Park, while driving in his silver Ford Focus.

Sentencing has been previously adjourned on two occasions.
