A 61 year-old West Kirby man has been sent to prison for making threats to kill and threatening a person with a bladed/sharply pointed article in a public place.

John Tate, also known as John Taylor, also pleaded guilty to s47 assault, intimidating a witness in civil proceedings and breach of a non-molestation order in relation to the incident outside Devonshire Park Primary School in Tranmere on 15 May this year in which a woman suffered injuries to her hand which were consistent with a knife being used. ?????????????

??In relation to a separate incident on 6 May, Tate, of Greenbank Road, West Kirby, Wirral, he also pleaded guilty to a s4 public order offence.

Tate was sentenced to a total of two years eight months at Liverpool Crown Court and given a lifetime restraining order.

Detective Inspector Allison Woods said: “This was a shocking incident which would have taken place in full view of members of the public dropping children off at the school.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the school and the public for their patience while our officers dealt with the incident as I am sure this would have been a distressing thing for them to have to witness.

“It is only through good fortune that the woman who was injured was not more seriously hurt and thanks to our quick-thinking officers that the man was so quickly detained.

“Violent crime – including knife crime – does have devastating consequences for the victim and their families and Merseyside Police is committed to reducing knife crime and educating the public about the dangers connected to it.

“I also want to reassure our communities that the Force is committed to tackling domestic abuse in all its forms and we have dedicated and specially trained officers who respond to incidents of domestic abuse, investigate incidents and provide support to those in need.

“Domestic abuse can happen to anyone at any time regardless of gender, age and sexuality. It is important for people to recognise when it is happening to them or someone they may know and that confidential support and advice is available to those that need it.”
