Lowestoft: Man jailed for partner attack
A SUFFOLK man who threatened his partner with a chainsaw and threw a saucepan of cold baked beans over her has been jailed for five months.
Dale Rushmere, 50, brought a chainsaw into the house during a row with his partner Janet Kinney and switched it on before demonstrating it in a “threatening manner” to her, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Robert Sadd, prosecuting, said Rushmere had also picked up a circular power saw and held it above Ms Kinney’s head and poured a saucepan of cold baked beans over her.
Mr Sadd said Rushmere, of Morton Road, Lowestoft, had also grabbed Ms Kinney’s arms and pushed her round like “ a rag doll”. She eventually managed to escape and went to a local pub.
Rushmere, whose life has been dogged by alcoholism, admitted an offence of battery.
