A man has been jailed for over five months at Selkirk Sheriff Court for causing a disturbance at a woman’s house.

Johnston pleaded guilty to a charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause a reasonable person fear and alarm.

He stared through the window and door of the property and then struck its windows and doors.

Johnston, of Woodstock Avenue, Galashiels, was sentenced to 160 days in prison.
