A man has been jailed for six years for threatening a father of two to kill him in public.
The 25-year-old pleaded guilty at the Supreme Court in Sydney yesterday to one count of threatening to murder Mr Saas and a number of other people.
Police said the man was involved in a dispute with a woman, who was threatening to “destroy the man’s career” if he did not leave her.
The woman told police the man and the woman were in a heated argument in a cafe about two weeks ago.
He allegedly told the woman to leave her son alone because she was pregnant and threatened to “cut her throat” if she did not.
Police say the woman was in tears when they arrived at the scene and told them that she had been threatened and that she was “very upset”.
The man was later arrested by police, and taken to a local hospital.
“I am deeply ashamed for my actions, I will never be able to forgive myself,” he said.
“It has been a very emotional journey for me and I cannot imagine how this has affected my wife and family.”
