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.
