Stabbed woman racially abused Glan Clwyd doctor
A woman has been sentenced after admitting racially abusing a doctor who tried to treat her for a stab wound.
Zena Edwards, 18, from Llandudno, Conwy, was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital on 6 May after police found her with a stab wound in her back.
She spat at two police officers and was found with a small amount of cocaine, Llandudno Magistrates' Court heard.
Edwards was given a community order, 200 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay £720 in fines and costs.
During the trial, she pleaded guilty to racially aggravated assault, two counts of assaulting a police officer and possession of cocaine.
When she arrived at Glan Clwyd, Edwards told the doctor who tried to treat her: "You can't clean it. You are dirty yourself."
She had been arrested earlier that morning after two officers went to a flat in Rhyl in Denbighshire, and found her asleep in a bedroom.
When they tried to handcuff her she spat in their faces.
Andy Hutchinson, defending, said Edwards did not know how she had been stabbed because she was at a party and under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
"She is not a racist but it was a poor choice of words," he said.
