The threatening call put Billy Wilson in breach of a suspended sentence of detention made 13 days earlier for a string offences including robbery, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Wilson, who was living in Hill Rise, Stowmarket, admitted making a malicious communication, criminal damage and breach of an 18 month sentence of detention suspended for 24 months imposed on August 3 for robbery, aggravated vehicle taking and common assault.

Richard Potts, prosecuting, said Wilson’s former partner had received a threatening telephone call from Wilson on August 16 and had gone to a neighbour’s house with her children.
