A DUNFERMLINE man made a 999 call making threats of violence and saying he was armed with a knife.

The incident led to Ross Suttie, 21, of Lorimer Gardens, appearing from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on Saturday, at his home, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by calling 999, uttered threats of violence and said he was in possession of a knife.

The court was told Suttie was already on a community payback order.

Sheriff James MacDonald called for reports and Suttie will return to court to be sentenced on June 5.
