A Newtown teenager has admitted stabbing another man in the back.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named because of legal reasons, appeared in the dock at Mold Crown Court on Friday. He admitted that on September 27 he unlawfully wounded another man. An alternative charge of wounding with intent was dropped.

The defendant also admitted attempting to wound another during the same incident.

The youth was bailed into the care of the local authority, pending sentence at the end of the month and the Judge ordered a pre-sentence report from the local youth justice service.

The court heard that police body cam footage showed the defendant immediately after the incident and he was clearly in an extremely intoxicated and emotional state.

A previous charge of making a threat to kill was not proceeded with.
