A 27-year-old man has been given a 12-month conditional discharge after a late-night fracas at an Ipswich kebab shop.

Nathan Weston, of Delamere Road, Colchester, admitted threatening behaviour on September 30 when he appeared at the magistrates court in Ipswich.

Weston told police he had been assaulted with a stick by a man in a kebab shop.

He said the alleged assailant worked at Perfect Kebabs in Falcon Street. Weston went towards the takeaway to identify the person, but then ran off.

The shop’s CCTV was viewed. It showed Weston picked up a rubbish bin and left with it, before returning laughing.

Staff ushered him out and an altercation took place. Punches were said to have been thrown at Weston.

One worker grabbed a broom during the commotion, and another grabbed it off him and returned to the shop.
