A judge has agreed to reinstate a restraining order banning contact between a son and the father he stabbed more than 30 times in Ixworth.

Daryl Trevers attacked Maxwell Trevers with two knives during an argument about a computer printer at the family home in Stow Road, Ixworth in March 2010.

Mr Trevers, 41, sustained knife wounds to his shoulder, back, arms neck, face and body.

Daryl Trevers, who at the time of the incident was aged 18, was sentenced to four years custody at Ipswich Crown Court in December 2010 after pleading guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

At the time a restraining order was made banning Daryl Trevers from having any contact with his father or going within two miles of Stow Road, Ixworth.

That order was subsequently amended to grant written and face to face access between Mr Trevers and his son.

However, yesterday (Friday, September 23) Ipswich Crown Court heard that Mr Trevers wanted the original order reinstated.

The court heard from Mr Trevers that during supervised contact his son had shown no remorse and appeared unwilling to discuss their issues.

Mr Trevers senior said he felt uncomfortable being in the same room as his son.

Giving evidence, Daryl Trevers told Judge John Devaux that he did not oppose the reinstatement of the restraining order.

He said he did not want to visit his father and had no wish to harm him.

Judge Devaux told Daryl Trevers, who said he had committed no offences since his release from a young offenders institution, that re-imposing the restraining order did not reflect any criticism of him.
