A man allegedly took possession of knives and scissors during an abusive course of conduct against his ex-partner.
Imsaar Hussein, of Mid Road, allegedly behaved in a threatening or abusive manner towards the woman at an address on Peter Street between November 5 and 7.
He denies repeatedly phoning her, attending her home uninvited, entering her property using a key, acting aggressively towards her and refusing to leave.
Hussein allegedly seized her mobile phone to prevent her from phoning the police before taking hold of four knives and a pair of scissors.
The woman was allegedly injured during a struggle with him. A trial was set for January.
