A man has admitted affray and possession of a sword in Cromer town centre when he appeared for a brief hearing at Norwich Crown Court.
Officers were called to Runton Road, following reports that a man armed with a sword was seen in the area on August 23, this year.
Andrew Sinclair, 56, was detained a short time afterwards by police officers on Church Street, and he was taken to Aylsham Police Investigation Centre, where he was questioned and Sinclair was later charged over the incident which happened around 10pm.
Sinclair, of Runton Road, Cromer, appeared from Norwich prison via a video link and admitted affray and having an offensive weapon, a sword, in a public place.
Sinclair was further remanded in custody and Judge Anthony Bate ordered an update for his pre-sentence report and adjourned sentencing until October 13.
