A FARINGDON man breached a restraining order within days of its imposition – after his ex-partner saw him on a night out in Swindon.

Mohsin Khan, 21, was given the two year restraining order by Oxford magistrates on Friday, April 30, as he was handed a 12 month conditional discharge for criminal damage.

But just two days later, he breached the order. Prosecutor Kate Prince told Swindon Magistrates’ Court on Monday that police were called by the ex-partner’s sister and told an “incident” had taken place between Khan and his former girlfriend.

They found Khan hiding in a bush in Old Town. His former partner and her sister refused to provide statements.

Mark Glendenning, mitigating, said his client had been on a night out in Swindon when he bumped into his ex and her sister. “He made a mistake,” the solicitor said. Khan, an Amazon delivery driver, accepted he shouldn’t have contact with his former partner.

Khan, of Walker Driver, Faringdon, admitted breaching a restraining order and a conditional discharge. He was fined £160 and ordered to pay £119 in costs and surcharge.
