A MAN with an injured foot threw a crutch and a child’s scooter at the car containing his ex-girlfriend’s new partner, York Crown Court heard.

Nathan Humble, 24, told the other man, who had locked himself into the vehicle, to get out and threatened to kill him, said Matthew Bean, prosecuting.

The incident outside the home of Humble’s ex-girlfriend in Sherburn near Malton, took place shortly after Humble had told the other man by telephone to “watch his back”.

The other man was terrified, but uninjured.

Humble of The Ropery, Whitby, pleaded guilty to making threats to kill and affray.

He was given an 18-month community order with a rehabilitative course, 15 days’ rehabilitative activities and 60 hours’ unpaid work.

Judge Andrew Stubbs QC told him: “As your relationship fell apart, so did you fall apart.

“You failed to cope with it completely.

“It is serious offending. It shows just how far you had fallen and the state you had got yourself into.”

For Humble, Chloe Fairley said Humble and the woman were now friends and had travelled to court together.

Mr Bean said the victim called police from the car and when he heard officers were on the way, Humble went back into the house.

Humble had hurt his foot earlier the same day, October 20, 2016.
