Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A man charged with scar­ing a woman at her Ruther­glen home is ac­cused of break­ing his bail con­di­tions.

Derek Kirk­wood is al­leged to have re­peat­edly at­tended the woman’s home be­tween Fe­bru­ary 14 and Fe­bru­ary 16, 2016. He is said to have banged on the door of the prop­erty, shouted, swore and ut­tered threats of vi­o­lence.

The 47-year-old is charged with be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing and abu­sive man­ner on those dates at the house on Col­vend Drive.

He is fur­ther ac­cused of ap­proach­ing the woman and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with her at Col­vend Drive on March 8, 2016 when his bail con­di­tions pro­hib­ited him from do­ing so.

Kirk­wood, of Castle­fern Road, de­nied all charges against him when he ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on Jan­uary 9. He will stand trial on Fe­bru­ary 1.
