A 30-year-old man has been ordered to stay away from a former partner of his for the next two years.
Wayne Stillwell, of Woodstock Avenue, Galashiels, admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards the woman.
He pleaded guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to shouting and swearing, throwing his partner’s mobile phone to the ground, forcing his way into a house and struggling violently with her before taking a baby and running away from the house without supporting the nine-month-old’s head.
A two-year non-harassment order was imposed.
In addition, Stillwell was ordered to carry out 200 hours’ unpaid work over the next year as part of a community payback order.
