At­tacker’s leg bro­ken in fall

Carmarthen Journal - - News -

A MAN hang­ing half way through the first­floor win­dow of a bath­room as­saulted the home­owner by punch­ing and throw­ing a plant pot at him.

David An­drew Young, of Florence Road, Am­man­ford, pleaded guilty to as­sault by beat­ing.

He was half in­side the open win­dow at the Am­man­ford house when he lashed out.

He then fell from the flat roof he was on, break­ing a leg, which he told a court had caused him a “life-chang­ing in­jury”.

Young had gone to the house on July 10, over con­cerns he had about the wel­fare of some­one at the prop­erty and had at­tempted to get in via the bath­room win­dow, hav­ing climbed onto a flat roof.

The case was ad­journed un­til Thurs­day, No­vem­ber 15 for pre-sen­tence re­ports, and Young was re­leased on bail.
