A man launched two violent knife attacks on a friend before pulling out a knife and a knuckleduster, screamed ‘I’m going to kill you’.

Later he pointed a knife at a second man, again shouted ‘I’m going to kill you’ before punching and injuring him, a court heard.

Cambridge Crown Court was told that Jesse Brown was drinking alcohol and rapping songs with a man on 30 December 2020 in a caravan in Meadow Lane, Willingham when the first attack happened.

The 36-year-old victim told police Brown pulled out a knife and knuckleduster and how the atmosphere suddenly changed.

Brown shouted “I’m going to kill you” before swinging the knife at the victim.

There was a tussle and the victim attempted to grab hold of the knife.

He managed to hold on to the bladed edge as the tussle continued but caused severe damage to his dominant hand while trying to protect himself.

The victim ran off on foot and knocked on the door of the first home he came to, and police were called.

Brown charged into the home of his second victim in Daniels Close, Willingham, at about 6.50am on 23 December 2021.

Brown pushed the 26-year-old man on the sofa and began shouting “I will kill you” while pointing a knife at him.

He punched the victim several times and caused a deep cut to the bridge of his nose.

Police were alerted by a 999 call from a neighbour who could hear shouting coming from the property. Brown was spotted nearby and arrested.

At Cambridge Crown Court on Monday (20 February), Brown, of Meadow Road, Willingham, was sentenced to eight years in prison after previously pleading guilty to Section 18 grievous bodily harm with intent, making threats to kill and section 20 grievous bodily harm.

Detective Constable Matthew Payne, who investigated, said: “Brown is a dangerous man, who launched violent attacks on two men he knew, with seemingly no motive behind them.

“Tackling street-based violence is a force priority and we will continue to do all we can to take as many offensive weapons off the streets of Cambridgeshire as possible, as well as educating the public on the dangers and consequences of carrying such weapons.”
