A LOUT who went to his ex-partner’s front door has been put under a restraining order.

Ashley Heath went to a property on Brighton seafront and damaged the door.

He also damaged a man’s mobile phone during a row there last month.

At Brighton Magistrates’ Court, Heath admitted the two criminal damage charges and also admitted assaulting a man and stealing cigarettes from a nearby shop.

District Judge Tessa Szagun was told about the 28-year-old’s mental health problems and his positive engagement with the probation service.

But she was told that Heath had “put a stranger at risk and in fear of violence” during his tirade in Marine Parade.

Court documents reveal Heath was “overreacting” by destroying a man’s mobile phone.

The judge imposed a six-week suspended prison sentence and ordered Heath, of Grand Parade, Brighton, to pay £220 in compensation to two victims. He was also put under a restraining order until December, not to attend the address in Marine Parade.
