Two men accused of having a machete had their case adjourned for an interpreter to be present
Two Polish men accused of being in Yeovil town centre in possession of a machete with a large blade have had their case adjourned for an interpreter to be present.
Tomasz Majewski, 29, of Westfield Road, Yeovil and Slawomir Wardaszko, 31, of King Street, Yeovil, appeared in the dock together before Somerset Magistrates.
They were jointly charged that on December 6 at Middle Street, Yeovil, they were in possession of a machete knife with a blade of 28.5cm in length.
They were also alleged to have threatened unlawful violence towards other persons causing them to fear for their personal safety, namely causing an affray, during the same incident.
Neither defendant entered any pleas and after the magistrates were told there was a language issue with both parties they adjourned the case until Tuesday (February 16) for an interpreter to be arranged to assist them.
Until their next court appearance Majewski and Wardaszko were released on unconditional bail.
