A man went looking for his ex-wife armed with a large kitchen knife.
Pawel Hryniuk, of Watergall, Bretton, Peterborough, went to the house of the woman’s parents in Bath Road, Peterborough, on 8 September last year.
Despite being told she no longer wanted to be with him, Pawel went looking for her in the neighbourhood while carrying the weapon.
When he couldn’t find her, he climbed her parents’ fence and sat in their garden until police arrived.
The 30-year-old pleaded guilty to possession of a knife in a public place and was sentenced to eight months in prison, suspended for 18 months, at Peterborough Crown Court today (8 September).
PC Alon Harris said: “Carrying a knife is completely unacceptable and when one is involved during a disagreement it can escalate and easily result in someone being seriously hurt or killed.”
