A spurned lover who discovered his ex-partner was in a new relationship and had been on a trip to Paris burst his way into her home, pushed her on the bed and called her a “whore”.
Michal Kaczmarowicz, 48, of East Mill Road, Brechin, barged into his ex-partner’s address in Brechin, pinned her to the bed before shouting derogatory remarks at her.
Forfar Sheriff Court heard Kaczmarowicz’s ex-partner had returned home from a trip to Paris with her current partner at 1pm on February 9.
She had a meal and went to bed.
Depute fiscal Bill Kermode said: “A short time after she heard banging at the front door.
“Her daughter answered the door, the accused barged past her and went upstairs to the complainer’s bedroom.
“She attempted to put her trousers on. He opened the door, slammed it behind him and pushed the complainer on the bed.
“He grabbed her clothing and pulled her to a sitting position.”
He started shouting and swearing at her in Polish, making derogatory comments towards her and asking “how can you do this to me?”
Mr Kermode continued: “She felt frightened about what he was to do and shouted to her daughter to call the police.”
Appearing before Sheriff Christopher Shead and speaking through an interpreter, Kaczmarowicz admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards his ex-partner, pushing her on the body, seizing her by the clothing, shouting and swearing and referring to her in derogatory terms.
Defence agent Billy Rennie told the court: “It seems the complainer had a new relationship and it caused him some jealousy.
“He has an agreement arranged for contacting his daughter and there has been no issue.”
He added his client, who was employed as a game-keeper, was “very remorseful and ashamed” of his actions.
Sheriff Shead fined Kaczmarowicz £350 to be paid at £60 a month.
