An argument with his partner while he was making a sandwich, led to a man running a knife through a door in rage.

Kenneth Fielding, 47, of Roxhall Drive, Grantham pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage at another Grantham address on October 19.

Prosecutor Daniel Pietryka related how at 10pm the defendant was at the home of his ex-partner making a cheese sandwich, but after a verbal altercation between the couple Fielding took the knife and stabbed it through the bedroom door. It was then thrown into the bedroom, and fell against a wardrobe, said Mr Pietryka.

Defending Fielding, Sonia Bhalla, said that he had put the knife through the door in frustration, and described it as ‘like an egg door’ with a soft inner panel that broke easily.

Miss Bhalla highlighted that Fielding had left the property immediately after this and when arrested by police he made a full admission.

Sentencing was adjourned until December 3 for a probation report, with Fielding remaining on conditional bail to have no contact with the complainant and to not attend her address.
