A SOUTHAMPTON man breached a restraining order by attending his victim's address and leaving her "abusive" voicemails.

Stephen James Mason, 55, called and left messages on his victim's phone and sent her emails.

He also attended her address and left her voicemails, some of which were said to be "abusive".

Mason was banned from contacting his victim as part of a restraining order put in place by Southampton Magistrates' Court in November.

But he repeatedly messaged, called and left voicemails for his victim between December 9 and December 27.

He also damaged a window, belonging to another woman, on December 27.

Appearing at Southampton Magistrates' Court, Mason, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to three counts of breaching a restraining order and one count of criminal damage.

Mason's case was adjourned for sentencing at Southampton Crown Court on February 3.
