A Portrush man has pleaded guilty to stealing a mobile phone worth £140 from his partner.
Arthur Hanson (30), of Mark Street, committed the offence on November 17 last year.
Charges of assaulting his partner occasioning her actual bodily harm; making a threat to kill her and possessing a knife in connection with a threat to kill were withdrawn after prosecutors said they were offering no evidence.
The defendant had previously denied all the charges he faced.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court on March 4, defence barrister Francis Rafferty said the phone owner was Hanson’s partner and they have “reconciled” and plan to get back together.
The case was adjourned to April for a pre-sentence report.
