After she allegedly refused to comply, he reportedly kicked down the door, blazed past the defendant and threw out the television set, microwave, bed and clothing. Police alleged that Greaves then armed himself with a knife with which he threatened to kill the virtual complainant.Greaves vehemently denied the allegation when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan last week.“I had a knife, but I was peeling potatoes. The TV was not working because she threw water on it,” he claimed.Greaves has been placed on a bond to keep his behaviour under control for the duration of the court matter, and he has been forbidden from being seen with a knife. The case will continue today.last_img
