A man accused of manufacturing a petrol bomb and throwing it at a house in Worcester has been barred from the city.

Kieran Gibbons appeared before magistrates also accused of harassment.

He is accused of making multiple phone calls to a woman to threaten her with violence, including threats to "damage her mother's house".

Gibbons is also accused of sending "repeated messages to others threatening her."

The allegation is he manufactured a petrol bomb and "threw it towards the house" on Thursday, September 23.

He denies the charges.

The 21-year-old was barred from entering Worcester at his first hearing on Saturday, September 25. 

He was also ordered by magistrates to make no contact with his alleged victims and to remain at his registered address to "prevent interference with witnesses or otherwise obstruct the course of justice".

He appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates Court on Monday, October 18 where the bench decided to keep the original restrictions.

Gibbons, from Fladbury Close, Redditch, has entered a plea of not guilty.

The case has been adjourned for a case management hearing on Monday, November 1. 

Gibbons has been remanded on bail.
