Man smashed up Acocks Green home with machete

Solihull Editorial 8th Dec, 2022   0

A MAN seeking revenge has been jailed for six years after breaking into an Acocks Green home armed with a machete.

Bobby Dwyer broke into the multi-occupancy home in the early hours of September 28, following a dispute over a dog.

The 22-year-old started smashing up property before forcing his way into a bedroom.

West Midlands Police were called to the scene of the disorder by terrified occupants of the home and discovered raging Dwyer outside.

He became abusive to officers and spat at one before he was arrested and taken into custody.

Police recovered a large amount of evidence at the scene including the machete he came armed with, a mobile phone he left behind and blood on a window.

He was also caught on CCTV approaching the property as well as inside.

Dwyer, of no fixed abode, entered an early guilty plea to charges of aggravated burglary, criminal damage, possession of an offensive weapon and assaulting an emergency worker at Birmingham Crown Court.

DC Jennifer Horobin, from the High Harm team at Stechford, said: “This must have been terrifying for the people inside the property at the time.

“After he broke into the property and caused considerable damage he then spat at an officer before being arrested.

“We managed to gather compelling evidence and this led to his early guilty plea.

“We are pleased Dwyer is now serving time behind bars for his unacceptable actions.”
