'C'mon, shoot me': Man jailed after wielding weapons

A CORAKI man will spent almost a year behind bars after threatening another man with a samurai sword, knife and metal bar while on five suspended sentences.

Bruce Desmond Randall, 38, faced Lismore Local Court on Monday.

Police arrested Randall after he went to Travis Collins' home multiple times on the afternoon and evening of Sunday, May 13.

He first arrived with a samurai sword and later returned, armed with a knife.

Police were called to Mr Collins' home about 4.30pm that afternoon, before Mr Randall left that address.

Later on, officers received reports of Randall having returned with a knife, according to court documents.

When police arrived, one man yelled "that's the c***, you'd better get rid of him or I'll kill him myself", indicating Randall.

In their statement, police said Randall was "shouting and waving his arms around in the air" and said to them: "c'mon shoot me, c***s".

Police tried to calm him, but he became "extremely agitated" and soon was wielding a metal bar.

The two officers at the scene asked for more police to attend as another man fought with Randall.

For stalking or intimidation with intent to cause fear of physical or mental harm, he was sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment with an eight month non-parole period.

For a second charge of affray, he was sentenced to 16 months' imprisonment with a non-parole period of one year, to be released on parole on August 12 next year.

In undertaking the May 13 offences, Randall breached five suspended sentences for earlier convictions of resisting police and assaulting police in 2015, obstructing or hindering an ambulance officer providing service to another person, common assault and break and enter in 2016.

For these breaches, he was re-sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment, backdated to May 13.
