A man who shouted and swore at his partner before stealing her purse has been given a chance to be of good behaviour.
Kenneth Brown, 50, pled guilty to behaving in a threatening manner towards his partner in Napierston Road, Bonhill, on June 27 last year.
Brown, of Obbiston Drive, Clydebank, admitted shouting and swearing at the woman and a paramedic before stealing the woman’s purse.
Defending, Judith Reid said that Brown was engaging well with a community payback order for another case and had been of good behaviour.
She said: “He is doing well. During the course of these cases there have been some significant mental health issues. He is going to have this community payback order hanging over him for some time and he knows what will happen to him if he breaches that order.”
Giving him a chance to continue his good behaviour, Sheriff William Gallacher said: “I will allow the orders to continue but if you do not comply with the order the option will be very straightforward.”
Sentence was deferred until October 24.
