A man who head-butted a 62-year-old Cambridgeshire supermarket employee while armed with a metal pole has been jailed.

The 32-year-old of no fixed address had an argument with the employee at around 9.30pm which escalated before Archer head-butted him.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “The following day (May 15), he was charged with possessing an offensive weapon in a public place and assault.
“He was also charged with breaching a restraining order after he called an ex-partner more than 100 times on May 5.
