Man throws glass through neighbor’s window after being woken up by loud music
Chad Scarah has admitted to causing criminal damage after the midnight noise when he threatened to attack his neighbor’s son and ‘smash his face in’.
A man threw a glass through his neighbor’s window after storming into her home, angry that her loud music had woken him up.
Ignoring attempts to calm him down from the noisemaker, Chad Scarah threw a drinking glass at a window, smashing it into pieces.
He was woken up by loud music from the neighboring property and threatened to smash all the windows after the midnight noise.
HullLive reports he threatened to attack the neighbor’s son and “smash his face in” and warned “this is just the beginning” as all windows would be broken Hull Crown Court heard.
Scarah, 21, of Bainton Grove, Hull, admitted to causing criminal damage in the city’s Crown Court on April 21.
Prosecutor Bede Porter said a woman who lived near Scarah and had known him for many years returned home around midnight after a night out with friends.
Two of her friends took her back inside and put loud music on the TV.
“As the music played, Scarah could be heard screaming from next door,” Mr Porter said.
Scarah walked around to complain and the woman turned the music down and invited him to join them to discuss the matter. She said his children could stay with him.
“He ignored the offer and threatened to break all the windows,” Mr Porter said. She repeated her offer that he could come in and that his children could go and stay there.
Scarah ignored this and threatened to attack her son and smash his face in.
He yelled, “I’m going to fucking do them all.” He went back to his own house, got a drinking glass, and returned.
The accused warned the neighbors: “This is just the beginning, all the windows go in.”
He threw the glass at a lower window, making a hole and shattering the rest of the glass in the pane. The drinking glass also shattered around the garden.
“Scarah’s girlfriend dragged him in,” Mr Porter said. “Inside, he could be heard hitting the walls and screaming.”
The woman alerted police and officers arrived at 12:52 a.m. He was taken to Clough Road Police Station.
Unemployed Scarah violated a 16-week suspended sentence.
His previous convictions included harassment, violating a restraining order, brawling, vandalism, disqualified driving and lack of insurance.
Cathy Kioko-Gilligan mitigated that Scarah had acted appallingly and immaturely. He and his girlfriend with two children, aged six and three, were asleep in bed when they were suddenly woken up by the music.
“He could have handled the situation better,” said Miss Kioko-Gilligan.
“It reflects his immaturity and his immature years. He can see where he made mistakes.”
Recorder Megan Rhys said: “His record is frankly appalling.”
The sentence was postponed to November 7 so Scarah can prove he can avoid trouble, work with the probation service, continue to seek help for his problems and save money for compensation.
He has been warned that he faces imprisonment if he commits further offenses and violates the terms of the suspended sentence.
