WALKER FINDS BLOODIED KNIFE NEAR PARK
A COUPLE have spoken of their shock at finding a bloodied kitchen knife on the grass near a Llanelli children’s park as they sat down on a bench during an evening walk.
Stu Smith had visited his partner Keira Jenkins at her home in Penyfan when the pair decided to go on a walk along Penyfan Quarry, which they had done routinely for the past two years. They decided to take a rest and sit down on a park bench, a short distance away from a children’s play park.
And they were horrified to discover what was resting on the ground in the grass beneath them.
“There was a knife on the floor,” Mr Smith said.
“My partner is pregnant and she nearly stood on it. I was quite shocked, there was blood on the knife and it’s absolutely disgusting how you can find something like this so near a children’s park.”
The pair reported the May 6 find to the police, and one of Miss Jenkins’s family members placed the knife in a plastic bag ready for the police to collect, in an attempt to avoid it coming into contact with anyone.
Mr Smith added that he had a young son and did not feel comfortable taking him there to play anymore
“My boy can’t go there now,” he said. “There’s a lot of elderly people who go there with their dogs as well and it’s not nice for them.”
Dyfed-Powys Police have been asked to comment, but had not replied at the time of going to press.
