Case investigator, Harriet Driver, based at Maidenhead police station, said: “I am pleased that these three men have been sentenced today and accepted responsibility for their actions.
“They threatened innocent members of the public with knives and in one instance it was reported that a machete was seen.
“Carrying a knife is not tolerated and the effects that knife crime can have are far reaching, impacting victims, their families and local communities.
“Officers work tirelessly to bring offenders justice and these three will now spend time in prison to reflect on their actions.”
