A man threatened to smash a store manager’s face in when he refused to give him a refund for an Xbox game.

Nathaniel Walsh, of Elder Road in Bradley, admitted to a charge of using threatening behaviour.

Kirklees magistrates heard that the incident at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Brighouse happened on November 13.

Walsh, 25, had entered the store to try and return an unwanted Xbox game.

A staff member told him that the security seal on the game had been broken and the store’s policy was not to offer a refund.

This agitated Walsh and store manager Steve Brown took him outside to continue the conversation.

Prosecutor Alex Bozman said: “He advised him (Walsh) that the seal had been broken and he was not prepared to give his money back.

“Mr Walsh lost his temper, making remarks towards Mr Brown: ‘I’ll remember your face, I’ll be back later to smash your face in’.

“He threw the Xbox game on the ground in the direction of Mr Brown and drove off saying: ‘You don’t know who I am’.

“Mr Brown felt concerned and scared as a result of this.”

Walsh’s details were circulated as wanted on the Police National Computer and he was arrested on April 20.

He had a small amount of cannabis on him and also pleaded guilty to possession of the class B drug.

Jonathan Slawinski, mitigating, said that his client had a genuine receipt for the game and lost his temper when the shop wouldn’t give him a refund due to the slight cut in the seal.

He told magistrates: “He lost his temper and made some silly comments.

“He accepts he upset the man in question and he’s been back to the store since and apologised.”

Magistrates fined Walsh £90 and ordered him to pay £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge.

The cannabis will be forfeited and destroyed.
