A COUPLE threatened with a baseball bat by their older neighbors during a snowball fight revealed that their children were having NIGHTMARES nearby.
Patricia and Grenville Moore, both 75, were fined and given a restraining order after trying to attack neighboring Jade Edwards and her partner, Dawn Halliwell.
Moore, a retired steelworker, threw the bat at 31-year-old Jade and her partner Dawn, 38, with OAP fined and ordered for the fight that started when “a snowball was thrown at the couple’s home. elderly last January “.
The women had been locked in a fierce battle with the Moores for several years, and the Bolton Magistrates Court heard how things had become “very, very tense” in the past two years with “antagonism on both sides.”
In court, Moore admitted to possessing an offensive weapon and using threatening or abusive behavior, while his wife pleaded guilty to using threatening or abusive behavior.
Since then, victim Jade has claimed that her children are suffering from nightmares, and the family may have to leave their home in Bolton, Manchester, to avoid the “neighbors from hell.”
She told The Sun Online: “It’s not us, it’s them nightmare neighbors.
“Our children are scared and have nightmares. “
Partner Ms Halliwell admitted that a snowball was thrown at PAO’s home, but said: ‘They are the ones causing the problems. “
And she said the situation had gotten so bad that the family was now considering moving.
But Ms Moore claimed that the elderly couple had “had enough”, saying there had been noisy parties next door, which the family denies.
Moore, a mother of two, told Sun Online: “It was a nightmare. They made our life hell with loud parties and thrown items. We have enough. “
Speaking of the baseball bat attack, Mr. Moore admitted: “Yes. What I did was wrong.
“I lost my temper and shouldn’t have done what I did with the baseball bat, but it was the last straw.
“We called the police at least four times against them.
“There has been a lot of noise and problems, but we feel left out by the police.
“We have had enough, but it is our home and we do not want to move. “
‘THE LAST DROP’
Adam Whittaker, defending, noted that the Moores previously had good character and had never been in trouble with the law before.
He told the court: “There were some initial problems, but in the last two years things have gotten very, very tense.
“He is a man who is less patient than before. He is a less tolerant man than he was and perhaps he should be. “
Whittaker told the court that there had been “antagonism on both sides.”
Il a ajouté: «From names corresponding ont été envoyées à la police concerning antisocial behaviors, from coups sur les murs de la fete, from the musique forte, from the consommation of alcohol in the garden of devant et dans la rue à l ‘Exterior.
“You don’t make a 75-year-old man of good character behave like this without provocation. “
The court heard that the catalyst for Moore’s behavior in January was a snowball thrown at his window and Mr. Moore lost his temper.
Mr. Whittaker said he was pushed and had difficulty getting up and Ms. Moore screamed because she was angry with what had happened to her husband.
Problems flared again in May after children played with wood in the street and Mr. Moore objected to the mess they were making.
Mr. Moore cursed his neighbors before throwing the pieces of wood in his path.
In a video that was shown in court, Ms. Edwards can be heard telling Mr. Moore that she would clean up the mess when the children finished playing.
The magistrates learned that there had been no more problems between the neighbors during the last seven months.
Chief Justice Lindsay Charidemou told retirees, “It’s a shame when you’ve been living in your house for so long and then you have neighborhood disputes.
The Moores have been on probation for nine months and each has to pay £ 75 in prosecution costs plus £ 22 to administer victim services.
They were issued a restraining order prohibiting all contact with Ms. Halliwell or Ms. Edwards.
