A DRUNKEN man who smashed a window at a vulnerable woman’s home said he couldn’t remember doing it.
On April 20, Anthony Gee, 34, of Mill Lane, Ellesmere Port shattered the window of a home in Sybill Street, Chester and walked away with cuts to his hands.
The window belonged to Arena Hopsuing and was worth £275.
At 8.30pm, a witness returned home from work and could hear arguing near the hostel.
Another witness who heard the window smash saw glass all over the floor so asked the defendant “What did you do that for?” He replied: “I’m sorry.”
Gee told police that while he couldn’t remember doing it, it must have been him because he was there and had cuts on his hands.
By committing the offence, Gee was in breach of a 12 month conditional discharge issued in February for common assault.
He has three other criminal damage convictions to his name in June 2007, 2003 and 1995.
Robin Boag, defending, said: “He accepts he broke that window, no doubt in temper or frustration.”
He will return to Chester Magistrates Court on November 5 to be sentenced.
