A BODYBUILDER who is banned from doing squats and squeezing men’s muscles is alleged to have targeted young men in Bolton.

Akinwale Arobieke, aged 52, is accused of approaching well built men in Bolton, Trafford and Manchester city centre.

He is better known as "Purple Aki", the court was told.

The defendant, formerly of Devonshire Road, Toxteth, was jailed 10 years ago for a catalogue of harassment charges and was given a sexual offences prevention order when he was released.

The order bans him from activities including feeling a person’s muscles.

He has since been jailed for breaching the order.

Arobieke now denies eight more breaches and is on trial at Manchester Crown Court.
