Man admits wounding at Pwllheli flats


A man has admitted wounding during a stand-off at his Pwllheli home.

Armed police were called out to a block of flats at Bro Cynan during a disturbance last month.

Ben Evans (23) also pleaded guilty to possessing a bladed weapon during a three-hour stand off. He denied causing grievous bodily harm, but the prosecution decided not to seek a trial.

Caernarfon Crown Court heard the weapon had not been found by police, but it was described by witnesses as a machete.

Judge Huw Rees refused a plea by Evans’ defence for immediate sentencing – the lawyer said his client had previous serious convictions and knew custody was ‘inevitable’.

The judge told Evans he had the ‘good sense’ to plead guilty, but he wanted a pre-sentence report to assess the danger he posed to the public.

There was no application for bail and Evans was remanded in custody until next month.
