A father threatened to “kill” his ex-girlfriend after she ignored his calls and didn’t pay him back money owed.
Adam Pickman, of Alma Avenue, Hornchurch, was found guilty of harassing his former partner at Romford Magistrates Court.
It refers to an incident on June 22, when Pickman drove to his ex-girlfriend’s address in Riverside Close, Romford, with his son.
He visited Nichola Beal at her home after making eight calls from three different numbers, the majority of which she ignored.
A “frustrated” Pickman shouted to his ex-girlfriend on arrival to come downstairs so they could sort out money she owed him.

In court, Pickman denied saying the threatening remark and said he simply went to the home to make “financial arrangements”.
