A shop-keeper feared for his life while being attacked by Pembroke Dock siblings, a court has heard.

Kayleigh Davies, 25, currently of Eastwood Park prison, and Wayne Davies, of Water Street, pleaded guilty to a joint assault when they appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Tuesday, January 29.

Sophie Hill, prosecuting, said Wayne Davies put a herb grinder in the pocket of his hoodie while the pair were in a Pembroke Dock shop at around 4.40pm on October 4.

He was immediately confronted by shop-keeper Peter Harrison, and pushed the complainant as he removed the item.

Kayleigh Davies, 25, swept items off the shelves, kicked a door and made threats as Mr Harrison grabbed Wayne Davies and removed him from the shop.

Both defendants continued to verbally abuse Mr Harrison as they followed him down the road, and Wayne Davies stated he would kill him as he picked up an ornamental rock.

His sister stood in front of him, appealing for him to stop, but Wayne Davies, 30, ran at the victim who shielded his head with his arms as he tried to hit his head with the rock, which caught his elbow.

Miss Hill said: “The complainant feared for his life when the defendant tried to hit him.”

Mr Harrison tripped Wayne Davies and tried to restrain him on the floor as Kayleigh made what was described as a ‘feeble attempt’ to grab the victim.

Mark Layton, representing both defendants said Kayleigh Davies regretted her behaviour, and played a ‘lesser role’ in the assault.

He added that Wayne Davies sustained significant injuries during the incident which followed a ‘disagreement’ with the shop-keeper.

Kayleigh Davies was fined £40 and ordered to pay £100 compensation and a £30 surcharge.

Her brother was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months, with a six-month 7pm to 7am tagged curfew. He was ordered to pay £200 compensation and a £115 surcharge.

Both were ordered to pay £85 costs.
