Penrith knife man wanted to harm himself

[A] MAN found in possession of a knife on a Cumbrian town centre street has been sentenced by a judge.

Police were alerted after Graham Bain, 32, was heard to say that he “was going to kill someone”.

But when officers approached and then detained Bain in the middle of Penrith on 22nd January, it emerged he was only intent on harming himself. A six-inch blade was recovered and no injuries were caused.

He was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court having admitted possessing a bladed article.

Bain, of Raiselands Croft, Penrith, was given a two-year community order after Judge Peter Davies concluded he “should be helped rather than punished”.

He must complete a 15-day rehabilitation activity requirement and observe a four-month Tuesday-to-Friday night time curfew.
