He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register and handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order following a string of child sexual abuse convictions in 2009 and 2019.
DC Greg Homer-Ward said: "Minns is a prolific sex offender with eight previous convictions against his name.
"During this incident he randomly targeted a lone woman and made her feel incredibly uncomfortable for his own satisfaction.
"His behaviour was disturbing and I am pleased he has been brought to justice.
"I hope the sentence reflects how seriously this type of criminality is taken in Cambridgeshire."
