A KNIFE threats accused Port Glasgow man tried to wrestle control of a pram with an infant baby inside from a woman in the town, it is alleged.

Kevin Drummond is said to have repeatedly seized hold of the pram during an alleged three-month course of abusive behaviour against the woman.

Drummond, 35, is accused of making threats of violence whilst in possession of a knife on another occasion between December 19 last year and March 30.

Prosecutors say also made an 'attempt to monitor her finances' and tried to headbutt her and strike her head with his elbow during the alleged timeframe.

He is also accused of breaching a bail order to stay away from the woman — imposed on December 21 — by approaching and contacting her on March 30.

Drummond, of John Wood Street, is said to have repeatedly shouted and swore at her and uttered derogatory remarks.

It is alleged that he 'did repeatedly seize hold of a pram from her control which contained a seven-week-old baby'.

He is also accused of threatening to dispose of her property, throwing it from a window, pursuing her and repeatedly attempting to contact her.

The alleged offences are said to have been committed at Drummond's John Wood Street home, in the Port's King Street and elsewhere.

Drummond appeared from custody on the matters at Greenock Sheriff Court and made no plea through lawyer Aidan Gallagher during a petition hearing in private.

Sheriff Andrew McIntyre continued the case for further examination and remanded Drummond in custody.

The case is due to call again next week.
