A WOMAN from Wrexham accused of wounding another mother who was pushing her baby in a pram has been cleared.

Lisa Davies wept in the dock at Mold Crown Court after a jury returned not guilty verdicts on charges of unlawful wounding and stealing a mobile phone.

Ms Davies, it was claimed, had swung punches at Jenny Roberts with a “metallic” object after the pair became embroiled in a dispute near to a children’s playground near Holt Road in Wrexham.

The court heard Ms Roberts was left with blood streaming down her face after she was hit in the eye.

She claimed she was set upon by Ms Davies, who was sitting down with her son at the time trouble flared.

There had been bad blood between the women previously and Ms Roberts claimed she had been threatened with being “slashed up”.

Matters came to a head on September 14 with the prosecution case alleging that after attacking Ms Roberts, Ms Davies threw her mobile phone away.

But Ms Davies said she acted in self-defence after Ms Roberts grabbed her face, hit her on the cheek and bit her thumb.

She said it was Ms Roberts who had started shouting at her and there was ill feeling between her and her boyfriend, Shaun Pritchard.

She said: “I know I shouldn’t have done what I did, but I wanted to defend myself.”

Davies, 39, of Russell Grove, Wrexham, had denied unlawful wounding and theft of a mobile phone.
