Carlisle man armed himself with knife after attack

A man armed himself with an eight-inch kitchen knife after he was attacked.

Stephen Patrick Lavery, 22, left his house in Marina Crescent, Currock, Carlisle with the knife after hearing the man who had attacked him was “still looking for him”.

Carlisle magistrates court heard how a man was seen walking with a knife and the police were called.

Lavery was arrested on Upperby Road at around 8pm on Saturday and defence lawyer Anthony Wilson said he had the knife for “his own protection”. “It was just to frighten the other person,” Mr Wilson said.

Lavery, who admitted having a knife in a public place, was just starting a new job and getting his life back together.

Magistrates sent the case to Carlisle Crown Court for sentence on October 18.

He was bailed until then and tagged to remain at an address in Carlton Grange, Harraby.
