A man whose behaviour caused members of the public to fear for their safety was jailed for a year.

Cervenak Vojtech, 36, was arrested in Broadway, Peterborough city centre, on the afternoon of 22 February last year after police received a 999-call stating a man was shouting and swearing and frightening members of the public.

While officers were enroute to the area, CCTV operators began monitoring Vojtech and saw him with a knife in his hand and confront a man on a bicycle.


Vojtech, of Charnwood Close, Fletton, Peterborough, appeared at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday 13 September) and was jailed for a year after previously admitting being in possession of a knife in a public place.

PC Kris Mueller, who investigated, said: “While Vojtech did not injure anyone, members of the public in a busy area of the city were frightened by his behaviour, prompting one person to call 999.
