A 21-YEAR-old appeared in court after he damaged part of his parents' home.

Jacob Robertson of Redhill Avenue, Hereford pleaded guilty to criminal damage to property valued under £5,000.

Nicola Ritchie, prosecuting at Hereford Magistrates Court, said the victims in the case were his mother and stepfather.

She said, due to to history between them, Robertson had not lived at home for two months and was not allowed in the property at the time of the offence.

He went to their home at 2.15pm on December 18 and began shouting his mum's name. He then paced around outside before he hit a glass window to the left of the front door, which was damaged.

Emily Gourley, defending, said Robertson's mum was at court to support him as they were now in contact.

She said at the time of the offence Robertson was living at inappropriate accommodation and felt frustrated.

Robertson was given a conditional discharge for six months. He was ordered to pay £185 prosecution costs and £20 victim surcharge.
