A 21-year-old Forest of Dean man who assaulted a woman twice, bombarded her relentlessly with threats, and breached a non-molestation order, has been remanded in custody to await sentence.

Jordan Marshall, who lives in Berry Hill five miles from Monmouth, admitted assaulting the woman by beating her on two occasions in Lydney on June 25, 2023, when he appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court.

He also admitted twice breaching a non-molestation order by attending her address on the same day and again on July 12.

And he further admitted that, having been arrested for breach of the non-molestation order he breached bail conditions on November 16 last year by relentlessly sending messages to the woman making threats against her, her daugher, grandchildren and partner.

Marshall, of Coverham Close, pleaded not guilty to damaging the woman’s mobile phone on June 25 2023.

 That charge was dismissed by the magistrates.

He was remanded in custody until February 9 for a pre-sentence report to be prepared. 

The court refused bail on the grounds that he is likely to re-offend and also for his own welfare.
