RESIDENTS on a quiet residential street in Accrington were woken in the early hours by loud banging.

Blackburn magistrates heard one resident looked out to see Daniel Paul Ryder kicking at his front door.

And when he threatened to call the police Ryder damaged the bonnets of three cars parked in West Crescent.

Ryder, 27, of Clegg Street, Haslingden, pleaded guilty to damaging cars belonging to Shirley Lawson, Bryan Lawson and Anthony Wood and the front door of Mr and Mrs Lawson’s house.

He was fined £80 with £85 costs and £32 victim surcharge and ordered to pay £100 compensation for each of the cars and £50 for the door.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said at 5am all three victims were asleep.

Mr Lawson was woken by banging on his door and looked out to see Ryder who was asking to be let in." she added.

“He said he was bleeding and hurt but Mr Lawson didn’t want to open the door and told him to go away or he would call the police,” said Miss Allan.

“He then turned his attention to parked cars and damaged the bonnet of Mr Wood’s Astra, Mrs Lawson’s Suzuki Swift and Mr Lawson’s Skoda.”

Mr Allan said all the victims were unknown to Ryder, who was released from prison on January 3.

Richard Prew, defending, said his client thought his drink must have been spiked because he has no recollection of the incidents.
