AN IPSWICH man who lost his temper and threatened a man with the sheath of a Samurai sword has been made the subject of a supervision order.

Daniel Palmer, 18, of Wherstead Road, Ipswich had been at home playing on a games console when he heard a knock at his door, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

When he answered the door to a man he knew he had slipped over and as he did so the man at the door had grabbed hold of him causing him to “flip in the air”, said Godfried Duah, prosecuting.

Palmer said, “What did you do that for” and had gone into his home where he kept three Samurai swords under his bed. He had then removed the cover from one of the swords and walked towards the man at his front door with it.

Mr Duah said that in his basis of plea Palmer claimed that he had taken the sleeve of the sword outside and not the sword.

Palmer admitted affray and in addition to being made the subject of a supervision order for 12 months he was ordered to pay £200 costs.
