A Felixstowe man brandished a pruning saw during a late night fight with neighbours at a block of flats in the town, a court has heard.

Kevin Grimes was captured on CCTV arming himself with the saw outside his flat in Langley Close, Felixstowe, at around midnight and knocking on the door of a nearby flat where brothers Anthony and Callum Mills lived, Ipswich Crown Court was told.

During the violence that followed Grimes was punched by Anthony Mills who suffered a cut to his cheek, said Daniel Taylor, prosecuting.

At the end of the incident Grimes was kicked down the stairs by Callum Mills and ran off chased by the two brothers and a woman.

Grimes, 21, of Stour Avenue admitted threatening a person with an offensive weapon in April 2016 and was given a 12-month community order and 20 days’ rehabilitation.
