A MAN was arrested outside his home while carrying two kitchen knives.

Marcin Zaborowski, 33, of Villiers Street, Wrexham, had been subjected to a beating in the street.

Police arrived to see him back outside his home but on this occasion he had two knives in his right hand.

Paul Abraham, defending, commended police officers who dealt with his client swiftly by taking him to the ground and restraining him.

At Flintshire Magistrates Court, Zaborowski, who followed proceedings with the aid of a Polish interpreter, admitted two charges of possessing a knife on New Year’s Day.

He received a six-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

Magistrates warned that they considered knife crime to be very serious, particularly where alcohol was involved.

They ordered that the knives be destroyed and Zaborowski must pay £165 costs.

Matthew Ellis, prosecuting, told the court that police received a report of a disturbance in the street. When they arrived all was quiet but then Zaborowski, who had injuries, was seen to come out of his house and shout at a female walking up the street. Officers went to calm him down and saw that he was carrying the two knives.

They were able to take him to the ground and quickly restrain him.

The court heard Zaborowski had facial injuries after the earlier incident.

He had been drinking and did not remember going back into the house and returning with the knives.
