A man from Merthyr Tydfil who threatened to ‘slice his elderly mum’s throat’ has been jailed.
Glyndwr Thomas, 54, breached a Protection from Harassment order when he visited his mother’s house in Rhydfach on 4th January 2020.
The 74-year-old mum was shocked by her son in the house after he let himself in.
He started threatening her and she pulled a life-line chord to raise the alarm before fleeing to a neighbour’s house.
Police arrived in minutes to find Thomas at the address where he was searched and caught in possession of amphetamine.
A court had prevented Thomas from going to his mother’s village of Pentrebach back in 2014, following a number of incidents.
He was jailed for 12 months at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court on Wednesday, 20th January 2020, after pleading guilty to breaching the harassment order and possessing amphetamine.
DI Chris Grey said: “Abuse within the family setting can occur between partners but also between parents and children.
“Our priority is the protection of the victim, and legislation is in place to protect victims in all kinds of circumstances. Nobody should suffer.”
