'Someone broke in - but not me'

A WARWICK man who threatened to break down the door of the home he shared with his partner, then did it, has pleaded guilty to a domestic violence charge in court.

The 32-year-old admitted to one count of contravening a domestic violence order at Warwick Magistrates Court.

Police Prosecutor Ken Wiggan said the man smashed through the door to get a baby shower present.

Officers attended the scene to find a hole in the back door big enough for someone to climb through, Sgt Wiggan said.

The court heard the woman received a text message from the man threatening to break in, then a second message with a photo saying someone had broken in, but it wasn't him.

Lawyer Phil Crook said the man was locked out and the woman and three children who also lived there were not home when he did the damage.

The man was placed on a $500 good behaviour bond for a year.
