A court has been told a man threatened to rape a woman and burn down the house she shared with her partner.
Twenty-two-year-old Connor Scobbie denies eight charges, including threatening behaviour and supplying cannabis between April 11 and April 29 this year.
Scobbie, who is on trial at Inverness Sheriff Court, also denies breaking into the couple’s house in Invergordon and stealing a TV on April 28.
Further charges allege he assaulted and severely injured Wladyslaw Lachmanski on Castle Road, Invergordon, on June 14 by stamping on his body as he lay unconscious and then struck a 16-year-old boy’s head to injury, threatened his ex-partner and made derogatory remarks in Invergordon on July 25 before assaulting her by striking her on the head and spitting on her.
He is also accused of assaulting James Seel by striking him on the head, causing him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness, and then repeatedly striking him on the head.
The man whose home Scobbie allegedly threatened to burn down told jurors he had bought some cannabis from the accused but did not have the money to pay him.
He said: “Then I got text and voicemail messages from Connor – they were quite sickening.”
The trial continues.
