A 21-year-old woman who threatened a police officer with a kitchen knife at her home was yesterday warned she could be sent to prison.

Corrinne Williams, of Millington Court, Thetford, admitted a charge of assaulting a constable after police were called to an incident of public disorder on the Abbey Estate last month.

Nick Crampton, prosecuting, told Thetford Magistrates that PC Thomas Munday had attended Edinburgh Way at 11pm on August 8 after reports of a woman shouting from the top of a block of flats and being verbally abusive to members of the public.

The officer tried to calm Williams down but she became abusive and picked up a kitchen knife and made "threatening gestures".

James Yardy, in mitigation, said Williams had been upset after being subjected to abuse from her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend.

The case was adjourned for sentencing next month.
