A man has admitted the attempted murder of a pregnant woman.

Daniel Mihai Popescu, 29, pleaded guilty to attempting to murder Andreea Pintili in Coronation Place, Aberfan, in South Wales, on December 5 last year.

Ms Pintili, who witnesses said was pregnant, was taken to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff for treatment and later discharged.

Popescu, who appeared before Cardiff Crown Court on Thursday, also pleaded guilty to wounding with intent.

He will be sentenced on May 28.

Popescu, of no fixed address, denied a charge of intimidating the witness, but the Crown Prosecution Service will not seek a trial on the matter.
