A MAN who showed no remorse after hitting a female neighbour in the face and threatening her partner with a kitchen knife is today behind bars.
Emdid Hoshyir is starting a four-month spell in prison after magistrates said locking him up was the only way to prevent him reoffending.
The 22-year-old had been found guilty during a trial of assaulting a woman and brandishing an offensive weapon in public. He had pleaded not guilty.
But magistrates heard how Hoshyir, of Sirdar Road, Ipswich, launched an attack on his neighbour at midnight on May 30.
He twice visited her home to swear and shout at her.
The woman closed the door on Hoshyir but went to his address later that night with her partner.

It was at Hoshyir's home where he punched the woman in the face and shouted "I'm going to kill you" to her partner while waving a large kitchen knife.
John Hughes, mitigating at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court on Wednesday said Hoshyir was fearful of prison. He asked for an alternative punishment.
But the bench said custody was the only answer because the incident was a "prolonged and unprovoked attack" and Hoshyir had shown no remorse.
He was sentenced to four months in prison for possessing an offensive weapon and two months running alongside it for assault.
