Mohammed Mumin, aged 29, of no fixed abode, had visited his parents’ home on Torksey Road, Firth Park, but when they refused to let him in he caused the damage, according to a Sheffield Magistrates’ Court hearing.
Mumin was due in court on January 29 for sentencing but after he failed to attend a warrant for his arrest had to be issued.
The defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of causing damage from January 7 and admitted failing to comply with a community order by failing to attend probation appointments.
Andrew Dalrymple, defending, said Mumin’s parents fled conflict in Somalia and settled in the UK.
He added Mumin returned to Somalia but was traumatised by further conflict and returned and started drinking.
Magistrates issued a warrant on January 29 for Mumin’s arrest.
