A man has admitted to being aggressive and controlling towards a woman at a house in Kilwinning.

Mark Watson, of Irvine’s Sloan Avenue, behaved in a threatening or abusive manner on December 10 of last year.

The 24-year-old attended the dwelling, repeatedly banged on the front door, repeatedly shouted, swore, attended at the rear door, behaved in an aggressive and controlling manner towards the woman, searched the pockets of her trousers, and sent a text to her threatening to harm himself.

Watson pleaded guilty to one charge at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week.

Sentence was deferred for reports until next month.

Watson was bailed until then
