A man has admitted breaching a harassment order when he threatened to shoot a neighbour while hanging out of an upstairs bedroom window.

Nathaniel Ling, 36, shouted violent threats towards people living next to his mother’s house on Adcock Road in Watton including telling them: “I will rip your throat out and shoot you in the face.”

A 20-minute rant on March 25 this year also saw him threatening to stab the neighbour.

Ling, who now lives at Tyne Court in Croxton, near Thetford, pleaded guilty at Norwich Magistrates Court to breaching a restraining order imposed in June last year not to contact his mother’s neighbour.

Prosecutor James Quelch said the altercation had occurred after dark and had involved him shouting the threats from a bedroom window.

Ling also admitted possession of a quality of heroin and assaulting a police officer who he attempted to bite while being arrested.

The court was told he has since taken measures to address his behaviour and moved out of his mother's home.

Magistrates committed his sentencing to Norwich Crown Court on September 28.
