AN AMMANFORD man has admitted causing grievous bodily harm in an incident which reportedly left another man with multiple jaw fractures.

David Williams, 45, of River Way, was due to stand trial at Swansea Crown Court on January 22 over the alleged incident.

He was charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and an alternative offence of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The charges related to an incident in Ammanford on September 10.

Williams had pleaded not guilty to both charges, but on the day of trial, he pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The court had previously heard that Williams claimed his actions were “self-defence” and that the complainant approached the address Williams was staying in and “became aggressive”.

He had admitted “there was a single punch”, but in self-defence, before he closed the door.

Hannah George, prosecuting, had told the court that the complainant sustained “two fractures to the jaw and abrasions to the face”.

The judge, Recorder B. Clarke, adjourned sentencing until Wednesday, January 24.
