A HEARTBROKEN husband broke into a flat armed with two knives and carried out a vicious attack on his wife’s new boyfriend.

In a terrifying assault, the victim was repeatedly punched by Kamil Dzienniak after he broke into the property at 4.40am.

Dzienniak brandished knives as he threatened to kill the man in his own home.

He then threatened to kill himself if his wife did not leave with him and re-start their relationship.

Amazon warehouse worker Dzienniak, 27, formerly of Strathmiglo and now living in Lyneburn Crescent, Dunfermline, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court with a Polish interpreter.

He admitted that on February 17 he broke into a flat at Kidd Street, Kirkcaldy and assaulted a man by repeatedly punching him on the head to his injury and brandished two knives at him.

He also admitted that he shouted, swore, made threats of violence and threatened to kill himself if his former partner did not leave the property with him and re-engage in a relationship with him.

The court was told there was now no likelihood of the couple getting back together.

Sheriff Charles MacNair told Dzienniak: “This was an extremely serious offence. You broke into the house where your wife and her then partner were residing.

“You assaulted her partner, you threatened to kill him and you brandished knives.

“You then threatened to kill yourself unless your wife got back together with you.”

He told Dzienniak it was only the fact he was a first offender that was keeping him out of jail.

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with 300 hours of unpaid work. He also ordered Dziennak to pay his victim £2,000 compensation.
