A MAN carried out months of "frankly intolerable" abuse against a woman.

Declan Curran appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court without a legal rep to be sentenced for the domestic abuse charges.

In a campaign that lasted from October 1, 2020, to June 9, 2021, Curran pleaded guilty to an array of abusive acts, which a sheriff said was at the “top end” of the scale.

The charges stated that he grabbed a mobile phone from her, seized her on the body and grabbed a PS4 controller from her when she tried to phone for help.

He then pushed her and stood in front of a door to stop her from leaving.

The 23-year-old also banged on the front door repeatedly and demanded entry.

He buzzed the buzzers of other households in an attempt to get into the block of flats and then loitered in the close.

He forced his way into the property and refused to leave when he was told to go.

Curran, from Carntyne, told the woman she must not engage in a relationship with anyone else and loitered outside her house and looked in her window.

The charges stated he also mocked the woman's voice in a degrading manner when he was asked to leave and repeatedly shouted at her.

He also set up false accounts on social media and dating platforms for her and used these for the purpose of contacting her.

The charge was aggravated by the involvement of a child.

Sheriff Allan McKay said: "Between October 2020 and June 2021 your conduct towards this young girl was frankly intolerable and towards the top end of domestic abuse.

"There was a psychological element right through to a degree of physical fear.

"Some unpaid work would reflect the gravity of this matter."

Curran was placed on a community payback order on July 19 with one year's supervision and told to carry out 140 hours of unpaid work.

A non-harassment order was also put in place between Curran and the woman.
