Two men who “brazenly” flaunted a sword in a street threatening members of the public have been jailed.
Ramzadene Abdellouche, 20, and Sammi Sajid, 22, were spotted by CCTV operators in Broadway, Peterborough in the early hours of August 15.
The pair were joined by other men and together confronted another group.
Abdellouche was seen taking a sword from underneath his jacket and handing it to Sajid, who swung it towards the rival group.
Police arrived and both men were arrested. They found the sword on Abdellouche.
Abdellouche, of Allexton Gardens, Peterborough and Sajid, of Padholme Road, Peterborough, both admitted possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
On October 7, at Huntingdon Law Courts, both men were given time behind bars – Sajid for 16 months and Abdellouche for 14 months.
