A TEENAGER who shoved his then pregnant partner to the ground turned up at her door in Drongan armed with a large saw, a court has heard.

The 17-year-old, who can’t be named for legal reasons, admitted assaulting his partner by pushing her on the body and causing her to fall over while she was carrying the unborn child.

The teenager also admitted behaving aggressively by repeatedly kicking a door and then smashing a glass panel during the incident on July 3.

Having gained access to the premises he then shouted and swore and threw items around the property.

He also admitted repeatedly striking his head off a police van cell while spitting and kicking the door and assaulting a police officer by grabbing her by the body.

The teen also admitted causing his partner fear and alarm by turning up at her home in Drongan armed with a saw in the early hours of July 10.

At Ayr Sheriff Court on September 6, the procurator fiscal depute said: “On July 9 at11.30pm she received a Facebook message from the accused requesting to speak – breaching his bail in doing so. The accused was able to see she had seen them.

“She went to bed at 1.45am and at 3.15am awoke to bangs on the door. The accused was in possession of a large wood saw. She contacted police who attended and he was arrested.”

The youngster, who currently lives in Prestwick, admitted breaching another bail condition by not being in his address between 7pm-7am on July 16 and by removing his electronic tag.

The teen’s solicitor told the court his client had “been trying his best to get his life back together” after having gone “off the rails”.

The sheriff said: “In a very short time you have amassed these convictions. You know this will stay with you and dog you for the rest of your life.”

The accused was put on a structured deferred sentence for six months, with a review to take place in December.
