A WOMAN from Anglesey who assaulted a police officer in a “sustained incident” was spared jail.

Mandy Peters, 61, of Dulas, was sentenced to eight weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, at Caernarfon Magistrates’ Court on October 11.

She was convicted of assaulting an emergency worker, and causing criminal damage to property.

The court heard that, in Amlwch on May 24, Peters damaged a Kia vehicle belonging to Anthony Phillips, in what was described as a “revenge attack”.

Peters smashed the front and rear windscreen and caused dents and scratches to the offside front and back door.

There was an “element of planning” about this offence, magistrates were told.

On the same day, in Dulas, Peters, assaulted PC Llio Jones by punching her in the face with “substantial force” on multiple occasions.

Though Peters avoided immediate custody, having been deemed to have a realistic prospect of rehabilitation, she must complete 15 days’ rehabilitation activity requirements.

Peters will pay £600 in compensation, £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service, and £154 as a surcharge.
