AN EMBITTERED ex-boyfriend from Oldbury took a razor blade to his former partner's workplace to demand she cut the tattoo of her name off his arm.

After being told his former lover had left her Merry Hill workplace Kamran Hussain, aged 23, brandished the razor to her colleague and said: "She is not moving on until this (tattoo) as been removed from my arm."

Hussain then left the store but he was later arrested by police officers at his home in Thompson Road and repeated his desire to have her slice his ill-advised tattoo from his arm.

Hussain pleaded guilty possessing a bladed article and he was placed on supervision for two years, made the subject of a two year restraining order to stay away from his former partner and to pay £535 costs.
