A ROSYTH man went looking in the middle of the night for a friend who owed him money.

John Radbourne, 21, of Tovey Road, had been drinking and caused a disturbance at the home of his friend’s parents.

As a result, Radbourne appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on December 7, at Sherbrooke Road, Rosyth, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by repeatedly shouting, swearing, threatening violence and threatening to damage property and demanded money.

Depute fiscal Jill Currie said that, at 2.30am, Radbourne went to the house and started knocking on the front door.

The residents woke up and shouted down from a window asking who was there.

Radbourne shouted back: “Who do you think it is? It’s John. I want to speak to Cammy. He owes me £130.”

He was told to come back the next day but he shouted: “I’ll boot the f****** door down if you don’t open it.”

He also shouted: “I’ll kick your face in. You owe me £130,” and threatened: “I’ll pan your f****** windows in.”

He left eventually and the police were contacted.

Defence solicitor Russel McPhate said the incident happened at the home of the parents of a friend of his client.

Radbourne had given his friend £130 a year before and had lost his job recently.

He went on: “On this night, he had been drinking and says he lost the plot about the money which had not been paid back.

“This was a friend of his and he’s embarrassed about how he behaved.”

Sheriff Keith O’Mahony deferred sentence until March 31 for Radbourne to be of good behaviour.
