Jahangir Ahmed, 46, of Evenlode, Banbury received the prison sentence for using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour with intent to cause fear or provoke unlawful violence towards a woman in Banbury.

He pleaded not guilty but was convicted by magistrates. Ahmed also pleaded not guilty to carrying an offensive weapon – a wooden stick – but was found guilty of the offence. Magistrates imposed the prison sentence because the offence was so serious. They said use of the weapon was deliberately planned to cause fear to the victim.
