A JUDGE has ordered a man who damaged a car and was caught with a baseball bat to stay in at night under a curfew.

Raymond Kattenhorn was arrested after he caused £400 worth of damage to a Toyota Hiace, parked in Milton Road, Milton, on September 28.

Kattenhorn, of Kingston Road, Buckland, Portsmouth, pleaded guilty to having an offensive weapon in public and criminal damage when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.

He had initially denied possessing the weapon but he changed his plea before the start of his trial.

District Judge Anne Arnold ordered him to pay £100 in compensation to the car owner.

The 36-year-old will have to wear an electronic tag and stay at home between 6pm and 6am for 30 days.
