A MAN told his partner to “f*** off back to England” then smeared his blood on her window in Alexandria.

Kristopher Cameron, of Argyll Street, previously pleaded guilty to shouting, swearing, refusing to leave his partner’s home, repeatedly pushing her, putting her in a head lock and compressing her neck before punching her on the head.

In a separate charge, which the 28-year-old also admitted, he breached a bail order banning him from contacting his partner in any way.

The bail breach, and the incident which followed, happened when he entered her home in the town’s Luss Road on August 17.

At Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Friday, fiscal depute Kara Watt, prosecuting, said: “He sent her a text message at 2.30am on June 3 and arrived home intoxicated.

“An argument ensued about his drinking. He began shouting at his partner.

“She asked him to leave. He shouted to her ‘f*** off back to England – I’m going to kill you and your family’.

“She was terrified and feared for her safety. She pushed him, causing him to fall.

“He got to his feet and grabbed her in a head lock and punched her on the head. He repeatedly pushed her on the body and ran off out the back door.”

Ms Watt said Cameron’s partner had noticed he was bleeding and seen him smear his blood on the window before he shouted “you English b****”.

Police found Cameron hiding in the bushes in the garden, where he was arrested.

Ms Watt added: “His partner suffered bruising and tenderness to her left ear and right arm, but refused medical attention.”

Defence lawyer Jonathan Paul said: “He works as a chef. He has a lot of issues to address in the longer term.”

Sheriff John Hamilton sentenced Cameron to 200 hours of unpaid work and 12 months of social work supervision.
