A man is to stand trial accused of brandishing a chainsaw at his girlfriend in her Dundee home and “repeatedly” threatening to kill her.
Wiktor Krzyzan, 34, is accused of threatening Katarzyna Jankowska with the bladed weapon at her home on Yeaman’s Lane on Thursday and Friday.
Krzyzan, whose address was given in court documents as Tulloch Court, is also alleged to have assaulted Ms Jankowska, seized her by the body and repeatedly pushed her.
He is also accused of threatening her with violence and brandishing the chainsaw at her.
Krzyzan faces a second charge of behaving in a manner likely to cause a reasonable person fear or alarm by shouting and swearing and using threatening and abusive language.
This is alleged to have occurred at the same address on the same dates.
In a third charge, Krzyzan is accused of “repeatedly” threatening to kill his girlfriend after he was taken to Police Scotland’s Dundee headquarters on Bell Street on Friday.
It is alleged that this also constituted behaviour likely to cause a reasonable person fear or alarm.
Krzyzan, who appeared from custody at Dundee Sheriff Court and spoke through an interpreter, denies all the charges against him.
Sheriff Gregor Murray set a trial date of March 30, with an intermediate diet to be held on February 26.
He bailed Krzyzan in the meantime on condition that he does not attend Ms Jankowska’s address.
Krzyzan has also been ordered not to approach, contact or attempt to approach or contact Ms Jankowska ahead of the trial.
