Peter Cargill pleaded guilty to assault with intent to commit robbery, theft from another person, possessing an offensive weapon in a public place and assault by beating of an emergency worker. 

The 44-year-old was charged and sentenced to 21 months in prison, Greater Manchester Police's Tameside South and West team has said.
