A father and daughter who obstructed police when they came to their Ipswich home to arrest a family member have been fined.
Kashem and Imranai Chowdhury, of Corton Road, pleaded guilty at the town’s magistrates court to obstructing police.
The offence occurred on November 23.
Prosecutor David Bryant said police went to the Chowdhury’s home at 4.45am to make an arrest.
They strongly believed the suspect was in the house, but Imranai Chowdhury, 23, would not allow them in.
A female officer had her foot in the door, but Chowdhury said police needed a warrant although they did not.
When police forced their way in and tried to go upstairs. However, Kashem Chowdhury, 49, blocked their path by sitting on the stairs, the court heard.

Both defendants were ordered to pay £315 in fines, costs and surcharges.
