A MAN harassed a woman in a Herefordshire town with unwanted messages and visits, a court has heard.

Tahir Hussain entered a guilty plea to one charge of harassment without violence when he appeared before magistrates at Hereford's Bath Street Justice Centre in December.

The court heard from Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 38-year-old defendant had pursued a course of conduct which amounted to the harassment of a woman in Ross-on-Wye, and which he knew or ought to have known amounted to the harassment of her.


Mr Hambling told the court that Hussain had sent the victim unwanted text messages, voicemail messages, and social media messages and had attended her address between February 15 and April 16.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report to be carried out by the probation service and Hussain, who is of Cambridge Road in Smethwick was released on bail with conditions not to contact the victim and to abide by an exclusion electronically monitored by a GPS tag.

He will appear before magistrates in Hereford for sentencing on January 17.
