Warrant issued for arrest of Minchinhampton woman, 38, who waved knife at disabled man
A WARRANT was issued for the arrest of a 38-year-old Minchinhampton woman who failed to turn up at Gloucester Crown Court to be sentenced on an offensive weapon charge.
At an earlier hearing Zoe Deburiate, of Glebe Road, had admitted having a bread knife which she waved at disabled Ricky Halliday as he watched a cricket match at Minchinhampton sports field.
Her solicitor Anthony Woodman told the court she was not present and he had no explanation for her absence.
Attempts had been made to contact her without success and correspondence giving her the court date had previously been sent to her, he said.
He added that he was aware she had been released from a short jail term on Monday this week but he had no other information.
Judge Jamie Tabor QC ordered her arrest.
