Armed Flintshire 'vigilante' looking for alleged sex offender said 'someone is going to die'
A drunken man who went looking for an alleged sex offender while armed with a knife and a wheel brace has been jailed.
Colin James Clarke, 39, of Flint High Street, had seen a press report of a man from Oakenholt who had been charged with sexual assault and whose case had been adjourned for trial.
At Flintshire magistrates’ court at Mold on Tuesday, Clarke was told he had tried to take the law into his own hands irrespective of the guilt or otherwise of the other man.
