Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Robert Lupu could be seen in a window of the back of his house in Court Road, Whitmore Reans, making threatening gestures to three men who had been sent by the landlord to evict him at around 8.10pm on July 13 this year.

Patrick Kelly, prosecuting, said: "The three men had been sent by the landlord of the property to get Lupu out but couldn't gain access to the front of the property so went around to the back.
