By South Wales Evening Post  |  Posted: November 29, 2012

A MAN has appeared in court charged with two counts of common assault and committing a public order offence.

Stephen Jones was arrested after armed police sealed off Belvedere Avenue in Carmarthen on Tuesday morning.

Jones pleaded not guilty to assaulting Jodie Samantha Evans and Gareth Evans on Tuesday morning while appearing before Llanelli magistrates from police custody the next day.

But the 36-year-old, of Gomer Road, Townhill in Swansea, admitted a count of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour during the same incident.

He will now reappear at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, January 30 at 2pm.

Until then, he has been given conditional bail, and must not directly or indirectly contact Ms Evans or Mr Evans.

He must also not go near Belvedere Avenue in Carmarthen.
