Son-in-law admits double assault

By Cambrian News reporter in Crime

A BLAENAU Ffestiniog man has admitted assaulting his mother-in-law and her grandson.

Justin Ellis, 41, of Church Street, Blaenau Ffestiniog admitted before magistrates in Llandudno assaulting 70-year-old Alwen Jones and her 19-year-old grandson.

A trail of blood had led from the upstairs flat of Ms Jones in Church Street, to the lower flat of Justin Elli, magistrates at Llandudno were told.

Defence solicitor Michael Strain made no application for bail.

A pre-sentence report was ordered and Ellis will appear at Caernarfon Crown Court later this month.

Sheyanne Lee, prosecuting, described how police were called to the flats on Wednesday.

She said Alwen Jones had received “significant” injuries to her forearm and was taken to hospital. She would need plastic surgery.

Miss Lee said Ellis had apparently been drinking, was angry and agitated and had been challenged by the grandson Liam Jones, who was then punched in the face.

Alwen Jones tried to intervene and it was then that she was attacked, and her arm injury was so serious that skin hung from it. Because of the injury and the seriousness of the offence, the prosecution felt the case should go to the crown court.

Mr Strain said there would be strong mitigation and there had been a traumatic incident in the defendant’s background.
