A jealous pizza van delivery driver who bombarded his ex-girlfriend with abusive WhatsApp messages has been warned he faces jail.

Wesam Abdel-Fattah, 41, told Jodie Swinburne he would send people to break into her home and called her a "dirty crack whore".

Abdel-Fattah, of Chertsey Road in Twickenham , continued to plague Miss Swinburne until she called police in June.

He admitted one count of stalking and one count of harassment at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court.

Prosecutor Caroline Mungal told the court: "On 3 June the defendant started sending text messages to Jodie Swinburne and that's in regard to a letter he wanted to give her.

"It was approaching 11pm when she takes the letter from him she says she could tell the defendant looked angry and accused her of having another man at the house.

"He told her that said she was 'a money grabbing crack whore' and a 'dirty dirty crack whore'.

"He said 'tell that prick to come down and face me if he is a man'.

"'I will have people go into your place whether you are in or not and I would love for that b***k n****r to stop me'.

"At 11pm she heard a loud bang on the window.

"Police were called and arrived.

"While they are there the defendant continued to send abusive texts to the victim.

"'I see you at your flat have you showed them the messages you crack whore'.

"'Are you telling me he is okay with your saggy wrinkly body?'.

"'I'm surprised you can see that ugly n****r in the dark."

Fatah then launched a barrage of texts and calls, between 18 to 25 June, demanding they meet, while he was on police bail.

Miss Swinburne called police again after Fatah sent her an obscene video message on WhatsApp.

"On 24 June he sent a sexually flirtatious message and sent a video on WhatsApp," Miss Mungal said.

"She said she opened them and says it's something she regrets doing now.

"She felt harassed by his unwanted communications.

"She then contacted police.

"She said he used his job for a pizza delivery shop to try and keep tabs on her and had seen him driving past on multiple occasions looking in her window."

Wearing a prison grey shirt Abdel-Fattah told the court he wanted to be sentenced but changed his mind when warned that he faces several months in jail.

Magistrate Clare Horn adjourned sentence until August 30 and said: "Your offences are very serious and we will need a probation report."
