The face of a woman who was handed a prison sentence after taking two weapons to a Wiltshire school can be revealed by Wiltshire 999s.
As reported on Thursday, 37-year-old Lucy Maull attempted to access Wroughton Junior School whilst carrying a crowbar and razor blade on Tuesday 11 July.
The primary and nearby secondary, Ridgeway School, both located in Inverary Road, were locked down by teachers as police rushed to the incident.
The defendant, who lives on the same road and about 100 metres from the schools, was detained by officers. However, PCs Salmon and Kavanagh were assaulted during the arrest.
At Swindon Magistrates’ Court two days later, Maull pleaded guilty to charges of possession of a bladed article on school grounds, possession of an offensive weapon on school grounds and two counts of assaulting an emergency worker.
She also admitted damaging a fire alarm system whilst on site and using threatening or abusive words or behaviour with intent to cause fear or provoke unlawful violence.
At Swindon Crown Court on 25 August, Maull – who has mental health issues – was sentenced to 14 months in prison for her crimes. She must also pay a £187 surcharge.
At the time, Inspector Joe Senior said: “This was a concerning incident for everyone involved – thankfully Maull was swiftly arrested and no children or staff were harmed.
“Staff at the schools acted calmly and professionally, following established procedures to protect those in their care.”
In June 2022, the defendant was convicted of sneaking into The Ridgeway School and writing phrases in her own blood around the building. She was caught when an intruder alarm activated.
