A Unanderra parolee had admitted forcing his way inside two apartments at Mangerton and threatening to kill the occupants within a week of being released from jail
Nathan James Dawson, 39, had been reunited with his girlfriend Kellie Maree June Lawrence, 37, for just seven days when the pair caused havoc inside the Myuna Way unit complex on the afternoon of March 3.
Court documents reveal Dawson and Lawrence, a new resident at the block, went up to the second storey balcony about 4.30pm and started banging on doors as Lawrence yelled out "some bloke punched me about two weeks ago and it was in this section".
A woman who answered one door assured Lawrence her partner wasn't the culprit, telling her "it's not necessarily someone from up here. This is Mangerton, people who are staying up here could live elsewhere. People just come and go".
Lawrence and Dawson then moved on to the next unit, repeating the blunt inquiry until Lawrence ruled the occupier out.
The pair then went to a third unit and began banging on the door, prompting the occupant to threaten to call the police.
Moments later, Dawson and Lawrence got into a fight with the couple from the first unit, pushing their way inside the home as Dawson yelled out "I'm gonna kill ya, you did it". At one stage Dawson grabbed the male by the beard and pulled out a clump of hair before he and Lawrence were forced back outside.
Dawson then went back to the third unit and demanded the occupier open the door. The man refused then contacted police. However, a short time later, Dawson kicked the man's door in and shoved his way into the unit.
When the occupier told him he'd called the police, Dawson told him "if you don't call them back and tell them to forget it I will come back with some of my mob and beat the crap out of you".
Meanwhile, Lawrence said "let's get out of here before the cops arrive" and the pair fled.
Officers arrived to see Dawson and Lawrence walking away from the location but were unaware of their involvement in the incident.
They were arrested about an hour later after officers had spoken to the victims, who each gave a description matching Dawson and Lawrence.
The pair was charged with a host of offences and remanded in custody.
In Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday, Dawson pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated break and enter, while Lawrence entered guilty pleas to one count of aggravated break and enter as well as intimidation, police assault and resisting arrest charges.
They will be sentenced at a later date.
