Scott Paterson, 38, of Bourtree Terrace in Hawick, stopped the woman wearing certain items of clothing in public and accessed her phone and deleted all male contacts from her social media accounts and phonebook.

He also acted in an aggressive manner and repeatedly directed abusive and derogatory remarks at her.

That offence was committed between April and July last year at a flat in Duke Street in Hawick.

Sentence was deferred at Jedburgh Sheriff Court until April 14 for the production of background reports.
