A DRUNKEN teenager who headbutted a man before helping to rob him at a cashpoint has been locked up for two years.
Ryan Surtees, then 19, was part of a gang of four people who confronted Christopher Tracy, a 33 year-old IT manager, in Bradford city centre in the early hours of August 27 last year.
Prosecutor Howard Shaw told Bradford Crown Court that Mr Tracy had been getting a takeaway meal when he was assaulted by Surtees, who headbutted him in the face, causing cuts to his lips.
The attack was broken up by another man, who was said to have prevented the violence escalating further.


As the victim left the scene, he was followed by Surtees, along with two other men and a woman, around the city centre for a period of 11 minutes.
Mr Shaw said that Surtees was pointing at Mr Tracy, and had to be “physically restrained” from confronting him again.
After the victim visited a cashpoint at the Yorkshire Bank on Market Street and withdrew £250, the group snatched the money and divided it up amongst themselves.
Mr Tracy reported the incidents to police at around 4am and was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary for treatment to his injuries.
At around 7.50pm the next day, Bradford Council staff saw Surtees on CCTV in the city centre and directed police towards his location.
When arrested, he was found to have a bag of cocaine on him.
