A man brandished a For Sale sign in an argument with two neighbours before going on to stab one of them three times.

Now, Shane Bishop has been jailed for more than two years after he admitted wounding, battery and breaching a suspended sentence imposed after he broke a prison officer’s leg.

Sentencing the 28-year-old to 25 months’ imprisonment at Swindon Crown Court, Judge Peter Crabtree described Bishop’s record – which included a stint inside for trying to rob a young mum at knifepoint in 2013 – as “quite awful”.

A thug who paid a sex worker £20 for oral sex in a Broadgreen alleyway punched, kicked and bit the woman after incorrectly believing she was trying to steal his phone.

Daniel Coxhead sobbed in the dock at Swindon Crown Court as he was sent down for 14 months.

Jailing the 36-year-old, Judge Peter Crabtree said: “This was a serious offence of violence in which you engaged in an intoxicated, sustained assault upon a vulnerable woman and caused her very real harm.”

Two brothers who went “tooled up” to a car wash after an argument with a worker there were spared a spell behind bars

Swindon Crown Court heard Alexandru-Beniamin Hofman, 23, aimed his blue Ford Transit at the employee at the car wash behind the Queen’s Drive Texaco garage while his brother, 27-year-old Daniel Hofman brandished a pole and scrapped with the man.

Sentencing Daniel to eight months imprisonment suspended for two years and Alexandru to 10 months suspended for two years, the judge said: “Whatever the background the two of you went to the garage in a place to target the complainant, taking weapons to cause him at the least very real fear of serious injury and at one point using the van as a weapon for that purpose.”
