Judge cracks down on rising weapon-related crime

A DONCASTER thug has been jailed for more than three years after he threatened a man with a rifle when his girlfriend dumped him.

Armed police had to be called to Frederick Robert Kaye's flat in Wheatley after he produced the loaded firearm and a machete when their relationship came to an end.

Rebecca Kaye - who had taken the defendant's surname by deed poll even though they were not married - had decided to move out of their flat in Parkinson Street because she suspected the 26-year-old had been having an affair.
