A DELUDED Romeo broke into his ex’s home, cooked himself a pork chop and stripped before getting into her bed, a Swindon court heard.

Nechirwan Musa was discovered naked in the homeowner’s bed by a friend who came to the rescue after the woman heard a suspicious noise upstairs when she returned home in the early hours.

The 33-year-old, of no fixed address, admitted burglary. Jailing him for six months, Judge Peter Crabtree said of the victim: “No doubt in the early hours, alone in that house she was extremely frightened.”

Prosecuting, Colin Meeke said Musa and his victim had been in a relationship but had broken up around 14 months earlier.

On August 18 Musa broke into his ex’s home in Watercrook Mews, Westlea, gaining access through a conservatory window.

He told police he had waited for the woman. He had become hungry and cooked himself pork chops, tinned tomatoes and eaten some crisps. After growing tired, Musa went upstairs to the bedroom, removed his clothes and got into bed.

His ex returned home in the early hours of August 19. Mr Meeke said: “When she came in she heard someone running across the landing upstairs. She immediately found the friend who had just dropped her off.”

That friend found a naked man in the bedroom. He initially thought it was the woman’s boyfriend, but quickly realised it was Musa.

Heavily intoxicated Musa told police that his ex “loved him and wanted him to be there”. She did not.

In a victim statement given to police at the time the woman said: “I’m still in shock and can’t believe this has happened. I’ve had no contact since we broke up 14 months ago.”

Presenting a pre-sentence report, probation officer Claire Hyde said Musa had shown limited awareness of the impact of his crime on the victim: “When asked how he thought the victim would have felt [he] stated she wouldn’t have been scared as she knows him.”

Musa was homeless at the time of the burglary, staying in hostels or on friends’ sofas. He had lost his job at a Swindon car wash after his drinking spiralled out of control.

Andrew Stone, defending, said his client had sought help with his alcoholism while on remand in prison. He hoped to return to work.

Jailing Musa for six months, Judge Crabtree told the man: “It is not entirely clear to me whether there is any real remorse given the probation officer’s assessment of your victim empathy and belief that [your victim] wouldn’t mind. She plainly did.”

The judge made a five year restraining order banning Musa from contacting his ex.
