A 31-YEAR-OLD man threatened two women by mobile phone that he would “smash their heads with a baseball bat and blow up their house,” a court was told.
James Neary, prosecuting, said this when Shaun Brooks of Pen y Binc, Mochdre, Colwyn Bay, pleaded guilty to harassment in which the sister of his ex-partner and a woman living with her at Kinmel Bay were threatened with violence.
The mobile calls to the pair had been made on four occasions on December 29 and it had been assumed the threats arose from a family rift.
Craig Hutchinson, defending at Llandudno court on Monday, claimed it had been an isolated incident and that nothing had happened since. Brooks, a commercial diver, was genuinely remorseful.
Court chairwoman Grainne McDonagh announced that “given the gravity of the offences” Brooks would be sent to the crown court for sentence. He is already on a suspended sentence for a drugs charge, the court heard.
He was bailed to Caernarfon crown court but must not contact the two women or enter Cader Avenue, Kinmel Bay.
