My neighbour attacked me with a samurai sword

A WOMAN was left terrified after her crazed neighbour attacked her with a samurai sword – as she described the incident as “something in a horror film”.

New shocking footage shows the yob, Dean Brown, going on a drunken rampage on a street in Somerton, Somerset.

The attacker, 42, went after Robinson, 34, her ex-partner Lance Buchanan, 36, and another man after a row in October last year.

The shocking footage reveals Brown waving a long blade and a metal pole around aggressively, before later going onto to brutally attack two victims, battering both to the ground in a sickening show of violence.

Jennifer, who was knocked out by the incident, later described the ordeal as something “you would watch in a horror film” and says she thought she would die.

She said: “I used to think the events that happened that day were just something you would watch in a horror film.

“I never thought I would be faced with anyone capable of such utter depravity or would commit such a wicked and heinous act.

“I get flashbacks of the weapons being thrashed around in the air, the sound of them hitting Lance’s helmet over and over.”

Jennifer was left with a broken nose and needed staples in her head, after the row which apparently started when Brown confronted her about an incident involving their children.

A court heard that the violence started after a row involving children escalated.

Describing the attack in her victim impact statement, the mum-of-three was making Sunday dinner when Dean’s partner, Jodie Brown, 24, began drunkenly pounding on her door shouting about shoes.

When Jennifer couldn’t fulfil Jodie Brown’s request, she began throwing some 20 punches at Jennifer.

A male neighbour tried to intervene, which prompted Dean to arrive armed with his weapons.

Jennifer then called police and her ex-partner Lance, who arrived an hour later on his motorbike, Somerset Live reports.

Dean then went after him, raining down blows and forcing him to go down and try and protect himself in the foetal position after his helmet was dislodged.

The male defendant also attacked Jennifer, it was said, pushing her into a wall and knocking her out with one of his weapons.

“I didn’t know what she was on about but I just kept apologising because she and her partner were really drunk and very scary,” Jennifer said.

“When we couldn’t find her daughter’s missing shoes she started screaming and pummelling me and later Dean came out with a sword – I was terrified.

“I thought they were going to kill Lance, then I felt a thump and heard this ringing sound.

“It was the oddest sensation, a really high-pitched ringing, like I’d gone deaf, and everything was spinning. It was like I’d been put in a spinning chair in slow motion.”

Lance later told her the last thing he remembered before the emergency services arrived was seeing her on lying on the roadside and yelling “you’ve f***ing killed her”.

Jennifer was given a four-inch slash on her head from the sword, and Lance suffered severe wounds on his hands, leg and head.

Dean was jailed for 25 months earlier this month after pleading guilty to GBH, criminal damage and making threats with a blade.

But even now her sword-wielding attacker is locked up, the incident has scarred her and her family.

Jodie Brown remains at large after failing to turn up for sentencing.

She also pleaded guilty to GBH.
