“Sentenced to 12 weeks’ imprisonment suspended for 12 months”

Christopher Craig, 24 yrs of Hyde Park Avenue, Winchmore Hill, pleaded guilty at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Friday 8th May to criminal damage and affray.

On Friday, 11 July, 2014, a 23-year-old driver and his passenger became aware of Craig walking down the middle of the road as they drove along Silver Street, Edmonton.

Following the car driver tooting the horn, Craig verbally abused the driver before jumping into his own car.

Craig followed the victim’s car to the junction with the A406 where it came to a stop at a red light. Craig approached the victim’s car ranting, demanding the driver get out and threatening to kill him.

The terrified victim remained in the car, locking the doors.

Craig walked around the victim’s car, kicking the passenger door and breaking the wing mirror before returning to his own car where he took a baseball bat from the car boot.

The victim drove off unharmed.

Craig was traced through information held at DVLA and arrested on 30 July, 2014.

PC Daniel Mount, investigating officer, Enfield, said:  “The victim was travelling home from work and, in an unprovoked attack, had his vehicle violently damaged after being chased by Craig in another vehicle.

“Craig threatened the victim with a baseball bat stating that he was going to kill him. I can only imagine how frightened the victim must have been at the time
