Two men who “brazenly” flaunted a sword in a street threatening members of the public have been jailed.
Ramzadene Abdellouche, 20, and Sammi Sajid, 22, were spotted by CCTV operators in Broadway, Peterborough in the early hours of August 15.
The pair were joined by other men and together confronted another group.
Abdellouche was seen taking a sword from underneath his jacket and handing it to Sajid, who swung it towards the rival group.
Police arrived and both men were arrested. They found the sword on Abdellouche.
