A COWDENBEATH man was arrested for domestic offences against his former partner.

Gordon Davey, 35, of Rae Street, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on a number of occasions on January 7, at Woodside, Cowdenbeath, he sent messages to his former partner, referring to her in abusive terms.

He also attended at her house, struck a door repeatedly, demanded entry, and repeatedly shouted, swore and referred to her in abusive and derogatory terms in the presence of a child aged four months.

Sheriff Paul Reid called for reports, bail was granted and Davey will be sentenced on February 8.
