A WOMAN ditched her internet date after he told her he had stabbed his father and assaulted another girl he had met through computer dating.

Blackburn magistrates heard the women's doubts about Mark John Bury proved to be well founded and he started harassing her despite her making it clear she didn't want to see him again.

And his behaviour continued even after police had issued him with a harassment warning.

Bury, 27, of Rawstorne Street, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to harassment. He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said the harassment warning was issued in March and things were quiet until June when he rang her.

Sjhe said she didn't want to speak to him and wasn't interested.

"He responded by saying he would kill himself if she didn't speak to him," said Miss Allan.

"He continued to make unwanted contact and make threats and said he would stab her two children.

"She took this seriously because he had told her he had stabbed his father which was in fact true."

Jonathan Taylor, defending, said it was clear a pre-sentence report was going to be required because of the issues that had been raised.
