Douglas man to be sentenced in September, pleads guilty
A Douglas man will be sentenced later this year after carrying a knife and knuckledusters in public.
Thirty-five-year-old Przemyslaw Henryk Pasternak of Belmont Terrace appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas courthouse.
He pleaded guilty to having an offensive weapon and a knife in public, and possessing pregabalin without a prescription.
The court heard police arrested him in Alder Road in Douglas on 8 June and after they found the weapons in his pocket, he told officers they were for his own protection.
He was bailed while pre-sentencing reports are compiled and will appear again on 8 September.
