But when he used the ATM, he noticed that the kids had been flossing all over the place, so he asked them to clean up the mess.
This led to the children’s father, Nelson, becoming verbally aggressive towards the victim, who was not named until the separation from her.
Nelson took his children to the address of a relative before returning armed with a knife and looking for his father.
He followed the man to a store and began attacking him with the sword in front of his “crying and screaming” daughter and other customers.
Terrifying video surveillance shows Nelson pushing the gun toward the victim’s face and neck, unsuccessfully as they chase him into the store.
Nelson also took an item from the shelf and threw it on the victim’s head before leaving the store in broad daylight after the attack.
The father, who raised his arms to protect himself in the attack, suffered a stab wound to the wrist that required hospital treatment.
Nelson, of Nottingham, was arrested and charged with deliberately wounding and threatening a person with a knife in a public place.
He pleaded guilty to both crimes and yesterday he was imprisoned at Nottingham Crown Court for two years and three months.
In a statement about the impact on the victim, the father said: “I thought you wanted to kill me. He yelled aggressively and approached me with a knife.
“If I hadn’t left, I would have been seriously injured. Hearing my daughter scream and cry was heartbreaking.
Nottinghamshire Police Detective Laura McCullough later said: “The extent of Nelson’s extreme violence can be seen in the CCTV footage.
The victim was afraid of being stabbed in the stomach and neck and while he was brutally assaulted, her little daughter was present and witnessed what happened to her father as Nelson continued his attack.
“Given the nature and severity of this attack in a public place, Nelson represents a clear threat to the public and I am glad that he was removed from our streets.
I want to congratulate the sacrifice for his bravery and I hope that he and his daughter can now overcome his ordeal.
“Nottinghamshire Police take knife crime very seriously and, like the communities we serve, we believe there is no place for guns on our streets.
“We will not tolerate the people of Nottinghamshire carrying knives and we will always act decisively against anyone who carries a knife.”
