A Scissett man was found guilty of threatening the owner of Emley Post Office but cleared of using racial abuse.
David Brook, 32, appeared before Kirklees Magistrates’ Court accused of two offences of threatening behaviour, one racially or religiously motivated.
He denied threatening post office owner Prabhvir Uppal but was convicted of one of the charges.
The court heard how police were called after reports of three men threatening Mr Uppal on the evening of March 20.
Police carried out enquiries and obtained CCTV which showed the incident at the post office in Church Street.
The court heard Mr Uppal feared for his safety and opened the door slightly with the security chain on, before the verbal altercation broke out.
Brook, of Wakefield Road, Scissett, was identified from the CCTV and arrested and questioned by officers.
In the interview a police officer asked Brook: “Did you say to him: ‘You and your family better move out of here, you p**** b******?”
Brook answered no comment during the interview but admitted he was present at the scene and said he had gone there to help a friend.
The court heard the CCTV of the incident had no sound and therefore it could not be determined which words were exchanged during the verbal exchange.
The court heard prior to the incident Brook had been watching television with a friend Jamie Adams when another man, Joshua Smith, arrived distressed alleging he had received threatening phone calls.
The group went to the Wentworth Club to speak to Mr Uppal who they claimed had made the calls.
But the court heard he was not at the club and they instead went to his home behind Emley Post Office.
During evidence in court Brook admitted going round and kicking the door but denied racial abuse towards Mr Uppal.
Magistrates found him guilty of threatening behaviour.
The hearing was adjourned for probation reports and he will be sentenced later.
