AN EVIL thug threatened to slit the throat of his ex-girlfriend’s baby if she didn’t get an abortion, a court heard.
George Young, 23, threatened his ex just weeks after he was released from prison – having found out she was pregnant with another man’s child.
The court heard how Young, of Wawne Lodge in North Hull, demanded that his ex went to an abortion clinic or he would kick the baby.
He added he would slit its throat if he were to ever see the child after she had given birth, Hull Live reports.
The pair had been together for four years until Young was sent to prison in 2019.
Prosecuting barrister Andrew Petterson told Hull Crown Court: “Whilst he was in prison the victim started a new relationship and fell pregnant.
“He refused to believe she was pregnant until he attended along with her a midwives appointment on December 12 last year. The victim declined to say who the father was.”
The court heard how Young went to his ex-girlfriend’s mum’s house the next day, where he demanded she come home with him and threatened to take his own life.
Mr Petterson said: “He told the victim to get rid of the child and threatened if she didn’t go to an abortion clinic he would kick the baby.
“He went on to say that should she give birth and if he were to see the child he would cut the child’s throat.”
Young then smashed a jewellery box and candle holder belonging to the victim by throwing them against a wall.
Mr Petterson added: “He went downstairs and returned with a knife threatening to kill himself unless she had a termination.”
When the victim left the house the next day, Young called her four times, threatening to smash the house up if she didn’t come home.
When the victim returned he had damaged the property, including causing a crack to the toilet cistern.
Young appeared at Hull Crown Court on Monday to be sentenced for two counts of criminal damage and one count of harassment.
Recorder Peter Hampton described Young’s behaviour as “terrible”and “bullying” before sentencing him to a total of six months in prison.
He was also given a five year restraining order.
