A SON who was angry because his dinner wasn’t made burst in to his mother and step-father’s bedroom brandishing a knife.
Arraf Ibrahim, 24, demanded his £10 board back after bursting in to his mother Mry Haigh and step-father Alan Miller’s bedroom at the house in Poplar Mount, Bramley, Leeds Crown Court heard.
When Mrs Haigh said she didn’t have the cash, Ibrahim left the bedroom and returned with a kitchen knife during the incident at 6.30pm on January 6.
Prosecutor, Nicholas Barker said: “He ran at Mr Miller and grabbed him round the throat and said: “I’m going to stab you in the eye.”
Ibrahim swung the knife up and down around 20 times before throwing it on the floor.
Mr Barker said: “He (Ibrahim) punched Mr Miller once on the forehead over Mr Miller’s right eye.
“Mr Miller pushed the defendant back and told him to get out.”
The court heard Ibrahim left but returned just after 1.30am the following day and started swearing and shouting “I want my clothes” through the letterbox.”
He repeatedly kicked the door and caused £200 damage to it.
Ibrahim, of Potternewton Court, Chapel Allerton, admitted affray and criminal damage. His previous convictions include robbery and wounding.
Mitigating, Sharon Amesu said: “It was his account that he provided money to his mum and step-father for upkeep. When he returned home expecting there to be food purchased there was nothing there.”
Jailing Ibrahim for 18 months, Judge James Spencer QC told him: “When your dinner wasn’t on the table you thought you would take it out on your mother. It’s about time you grew up and acted like a man instead of a petulant child.”
