Salesman attacks homeowner with DUSTER after he refused to buy goods and faces Christmas behind bars
A door-to-door seller faces Christmas behind bars after attacking a homeowner with a duster and engaging in a foul-mouthed assault.
Shocked Fenn Settle was attacked for refusing to buy anything after coming to speak to offender Sonny Brewitt, who abused his girlfriend.
The couple said they both told the 20-year-old they were not interested in buying the household items he was selling, but the salesman lost his temper and attacked.
Brewitt, from Kingston upon Hull, was sentenced to 14 weeks in a juvenile detention center on Wednesday.
The incident was captured using the homeowner’s own doorbell camera and one across the street
In doorbell footage, Brewitt can be seen aiming a punch at Mr Settle, 30, and then saying he’s going to punch him.
Brewitt is heard saying “I’ll punch your f*****g head in mate” as he gets very aggressive.
He told Mr Settle to “come off your ride” as he removed his jacket and appeared to challenge him to a fight.
He then branded Mr Settle a “fat dick” and said he would get a pair of scissors.
Brewitt then hit the financial advisor with a green feather duster on a pole and repeatedly called him a “f*****d*v.”
In the video – captured on footage from his front door and from his neighbor’s doorbell across the street – Mr Settle can be seen stretching out his arm to protect himself before the man throws a false punch.
Brewitt said, “Honestly mate, I’ll leather you. I’ll get a pair of scissors from this bag. You’re a fat dude.”

As Brewitt approached with the metal polisher, Mr. Settle was heard saying, “Call the police, call the police.”
Brewitt then hit Mr. Settle with the duster and yelled, “You f****** d*v, don’t talk to me like a fucking idiot,” he added.
“I’m sick of you. Don’t ever talk to someone like that, you d*v.’
Brewitt threw the duster so hard it landed 10 feet at Fenn’s home in North Hykeham, Lincoln on November 18.
Police were called to the scene and Brewitt was arrested and charged with assault by beating, public order (Section 4) and acting without a peddler’s license.
The breach of public order consisted of using threatening, abusive or abusive words or behavior with the intent to make that person believe that unlawful force was being used directly against them by any person.
He was remanded in custody and appeared in court the next day, where he admitted to all three offences.
Brewitt was convicted in Hull Magistrates’ Court. He received 14 weeks in a facility for young offenders and was ordered to pay Mr Fenn £156.

Reliving the ordeal, Mr Fenn said: “I was on the phone with my mum upstairs expecting an Amazon delivery so my partner Nicola went to answer the door.
“My other half said ‘No thanks’ and went to close the door. He yelled at her.
“I went down at that point, he really lost it. He came at me with one of those telescopic dusters on a metal pole and hit me in the head with it.’
Mr Fenn added: “I’m not worried, I’m a 20 stone ex-rugby player.
“But there are a lot of single women and pensioners near me, it’s a peaceful, quiet area.
Mr Fenn said he had a small cut on his arm and a bump on his head.
He added: “I am really saddened that he will not be able to spend Christmas and the New Year with his family as a result of his actions.
“My concern was not so much for me as for my neighbors, many of whom are elderly.”
