A DAD told a judge he fears his violent son will eventually kill him.

Siamak Sheibani read aloud two witness statements at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday during a sentencing hearing for his son Dorian Sheibani.

The defendant, of Wimborne Road in Poole, admitted smashing his way into his father's home with a kitchen knife on November 14. He then chased Mr Sheibani through the house shouting: "I'm here to kill you."

In his statements, Mr Sheibani senior said his son has Asperger's and abuses alcohol. Sheibani, 31, had already been the subject of a five-year restraining order protecting his father when the incident took place.

"He pre-planned the attack on my property," he said.

"His condition means he has no empathy towards others, and no remorse.

"He has no job, nothing to live for, and I fear he will come to my house if he is released and kill me.

"If he turns up at my property, a restraining order will not protect me, and nor will the alarms."

Rob Welling, prosecuting, said Mr Sheibani had been in the dining room of his home in Queen's Park Avenue, Bournemouth when his son knocked on the door.

The defendant then smashed through a glass window in the front door with the handle of the knife.

"Mr Sheibani, fearing for his life, retreated back to the rear of the house, ran down the hallway and out of the back door," Mr Welling said.

"The defendant pursued him but he managed to hold the back door shut."

Sheibani then turned his attention to the inside of his father's home, causing some £25,000-worth of damage, the court heard.

When the defendant was arrested, he denied having an intention to kill his father.

He admitted breaching a restraining order, using violence to secure entry to a premises, possessing a bladed article in a public place and criminal damage.

He also admitted making a malicious communication on October 8, when he contacted a former colleague and said: "I will torch you in a fate worse than death and throw acid in your sister's face."

Mitigating, Tom Acworth said Sheibani's issues with his father are long-standing and the relationship is "fraught".

"These were not threats the defendant intended to carry out," he said.

"They were made under the influence of alcohol."

Sheibani, who has an ambition to work in banking and has previously worked for Lush, is working to stay sober, Mr Acworth said.

He was sentenced to 26 months in prison. The victims of the malicious communication will also be protected by a 10-year restraining order.
