Son who assaulted his Llangennech parents jailed for 18 months
A SON, who assaulted his mum and dad, held his head in his hands while a court heard of the attack.
Paul John Evans, of Dwyfor Bank, Bryn, Llanelli, had previously admitted grievous bodily harm, common assault and criminal damage.
He appeared at Swansea Crown Court yesterday to be sentenced.
Huw Rees, prosecuting, said that on Saturday, March 30, Evans attended at his parents' home in Llangennech, being aggressive and demanding money.
Mum, Jennifer Evans, told him no and he became even more aggressive. He then demanded she phone his grandmother.
"But she refused once again and stated that he already owed his grandmother money," said Mr Rees, who added that he then called his grandmother an offensive name.
He then grabbed his father, John Evans, by his coat and flung him towards the kitchen door, which he collided with.
Following this, he grabbed his mother and threw her towards an arm chair. She covered her face with her hands to stop him hitting her face, so he grabbed her by the throat. Some punches he threw made contact with her face and he started to punch and kick her in the stomach.
He left the home, and she took the opportunity to lock him out, but he began shouting through the door that he wanted his keys and lighter.
Mrs Evans posted these through the front door and thought he had left — but he then returned to banging the door, saying he wanted his dog.
She let the 23-year-old in and he walked into the kitchen continuing to shout abuse, before he was heard kicking the washing machine, which was left damaged.
Police were called to the property and Evans was sitting outside when they arrived. He was arrested.
The court heard that Mr and Mrs Evans went to Prince Phillip Hospital later that day. Mrs Evans was found to have a cracked tooth and a fractured elbow and finger.
Mr Evans was left with swelling to the rib area, bruising to his right thigh and a painful left knee.
David Williams, mitigating, told the court that for the past six years, Evans had not come to terms with the death of his brother and was upset that his grandmother was unwell.
Evans was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment. He must also pay a £100 victim surcharge.
