A TEENAGER turned up at a friend’s house armed with a machete and demanding to know who she had in the house with her.

Blackburn magistrates heard Tyler Jennys kicked a hole in the front door before Sheree Lloyd, who feared he would really hurt someone, persuaded him to leave.

Jennys, 18, of Dunoon Street, Burnley, pleaded guilty to possessing a machete in Amersham Grove and damaging a front door belonging to Sheree Lloyd.

He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said Miss Lloyd described Jennys as a neighbour and friend but there was a suggestion there was a relationship.

At 6.05pm she heard a knock on her front door and looked out to see Jennys wearing a balaclava and carrying a machete.

She went to the kitchen window to speak to him and he demanded to know who was in her house.

“She said there was nobody there but he became angry and started kicking the door,” said Miss Allan.

Mark Williams, defending, said his client had no previous convictions. He was living with his grandma four days away from Miss Lloyd.

“He got a message from her goading him and saying she had someone else in her bed,” said Mr Williams. “He accepts he was angry and reacted badly.”
