At Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on April 25, he received a 12-week concurrent prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

He is also prohibited from associating with Adrian Zitiello for 12 months, and is to complete 25 days’ rehabilitation.

The sentence was suspended due to his guilty plea and the prospect of rehabilitation.

Mr Zitiello has also been tagged to ensure that he remains at his home address between 7pm and 6am every day until October 9.

The court also ordered that his torch, axe and hammer be confiscated, and that he pay £200 in compensation.

In addition, Mr Zitiello is to pay £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service, and a £128 victim surcharge, to be paid in fortnightly, £12 instalments commencing May 1.

This made a total payment of £413.
