Thug with steak knife tells girlfriend ‘you’re going tonight’

The ‘youngest bus driver in the country’ has been sent to juvenile justice.

Kaylum Weaver brandished a steak knife during an argument with his girlfriend and chillingly threatened “you’re going tonight”. A judge told him yesterday that “very serious consequences could have followed” after he armed himself and urged her to “withdraw charges” against him in connection with a previous incident.

Liverpool Crown Court heard on Monday that the 20-year-old had been with his partner Nikita Clark for around two years before his depression “put a strain on the relationship”. She met Weaver, of Beechill Close in Gateacre, on the evening of April 10 this year but returned home and blocked his phone number as he was reportedly “looking for a fight”.

Derek Jones, prosecuting, described how Ms Clark then received around 30 calls from a hidden number before she saw him outside her address later that evening, lowering the tires of her car before being driven away by a friend. He was arrested following this incident but subsequently released on bail under conditions not to contact his now estranged girlfriend.

However, on April 20, Weaver called the 23-year-old and urged her to “drop the charges against him.” He also told her that he had changed her vehicle’s logbook information to add himself as the owner.

Mrs Clark then visited the defendant at his home address and the couple began talking outside in her car. Weaver “kept asking her to drop the charges,” but she refused and asked him to leave.
