A TULLIBODY man threw a brick through the window of his family home when he could not get in.

Jack Martin's behaviour left his partner "petrified"as alarmed neighbours called the police.

Martin, 33, of Newbiggin Crescent, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday, March 2.

He admitted that on November 29, at his home, he acted aggressively, repeatedly banged on the front and back doors, demanded entry, shouted, swore towards his partner and struck a window with a brick, damaging it.

Depute fiscal Katherine Fraser said the couple had been in an on/off relationship for nine years and had four children together.

At some time in the evening, the woman heard the front and back doors being banged.

It was Martin, who was outside shouting "Let me in", disturbing neighbours who were alarmed by the noise.

Martin continued to shout and swear saying: "Let me in you f****** b******."

A neighbour texted the woman to ask if everything was okay and she replied that she was "petrified".

Martin then threw a brick though a window before shouting abuse at neighbours saying: "You're c**** and I hate you."

Sheriff Neil Bowie called for reports and a Caledonian Programme Assessment.

Martin will be sentenced on March 30.
