Three men used a machete, a baseball bat, and knives in a street fight that “terrorised people in Chesterton”.
It has taken four years for the case to come to court but at Cambridge Crown Court on April 27, all three were jailed.
A fourth defendant was given a suspended sentence.
Gordon Lee Gulliford, 43, Tommy Lee Gulliford, 23, and Jimmy Willett, 22, were involved in the fracas in Ashfield Road, Chesterton, Cambridge, at about 12.45pm on 21 April 2019.
Police had received calls about a group of men fighting with weapons, including a machete, knife, and a baseball bat.
A man had had a white Fiat car reversed at him and suffered a cut across a buttock, and another man suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
DC Ciaron Hickey said: “This fight terrorised people in Chesterton and we will not tolerate violence that puts other people and their property in danger.
“Knife crime is a priority for the neighbourhood policing team in Cambridge and we are determined to bring those who carry a weapon in the city to justice.”
On Thursday (27 April), at Cambridge Crown Court, Gordon Lee Gulliford, of Jubilee Crescent, Stowupland, Stowmarket, Suffolk, was jailed for a year, having pleaded guilty to affray.
Tommy Lee Gulliford, of Ross Street, Cambridge, and Willett, of Frank’s Lane, Cambridge, were sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court on 6 March.
