Two men accused of brandishing a ‘knife and axe’ during a road rage clash in Stratford have been sentenced.
Mical Tadesse, 34, of Silverland Street, North Woolwich, and Tyrone Foster, 31, of no fixed abode, squared up to each other in Portway last May,.
Witnesses claimed the pair got out of their cars before rowing over each other’s driving.
Tadesse was found guilty of threatening a person with a bladed article in a public place and jailed for four weeks.
An earlier charge of affray was dropped.
Foster admitted affray and received a 12-week suspended prison term for 12 months.
Both men were ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115 each.

Photographer Mitchell Gunn, who snapped the incident from his window, told the Recorder at the time: “It was like handbags at dawn but with sharp and very scary handbags. It was posturing.”
Both men were sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court last month.
