A YOUNG man who went out and intimidated a young man he had earlier assaulted – on the day he was granted bail – is to spend Christmas in custody.

Samuel Christopher Jones, 18, of Second Avenue, Llay, admitted common assault and intimidating a witness.

That put him in breach of his early release licence and he had been recalled to custody. At Flintshire Magistrates Court, Jones received a five month youth custody sentence.

Euros Jones, defending, said Jones was being pragmatic and appreciated he would spend Christmas in custody.

Prosecutor Justin Espie said at 9pm on November 28 Jones was walking in a supermarket car park when he approached the victim and punched him in the face.

The prosecution claim it was random and unprovoked.

The following day Jones appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court and was granted bail.

But that day at Wrexham Job Centre he bumped into the complainant and threatened him.

A security officer heard him say: “You had better drop the charge or I will get people to come around to your house.”

Mr Jones said the initial attack was not random – the pair knew each other and Jones approached the complainant about comments he had allegedly written on social network website Facebook about him.

The second incident was not planned.

Mr Jones said Jones had no idea the complainant would be at the job centre at that time.
