TWO young children screamed in terror as their mother's ex-boyfriend smashed a window at their home.
Spurned lover Danny Punton head butted the glass after he was refused entry to the Wisbech flat in the early hours.
The children's mother had told drunken Punton to leave after he woke her - but he continued to knock on the window, punch the wall and head butt the window.
"By the end of the incident, two young children inside the property were awake and screaming," said prosecutor Sylvia Cundell.
The children's mother was woken at 12.15am by Punton knocking on a window, she felt uneasy and ignored the noise, said Mr Cundell. She saw Punton outside, and a relative was trying to pull him away.
"She made it clear he was not welcome," added Mrs Cundell. "She told him to go away several times."
