Raymond Vickers “shouted and screamed” at the women who he believed were trying to move his mobility scooter by reversing into it in order to park outside his Banham Road home.
The father of 10 then fetched an ornament axe from his home and brandished the metal weapon before striking one of the women on her arm leaving a red mark.
The pensioner who was topless then pulled his shorts down exposing himself to two of the women.

On Thursday the jury found Vickers guilty of indecent exposure, possessing an offensive weapon and common assault.
Mr Recorder Surendra Popat said: “He is likely to get a custodial sentence in light of these serious offences against women.”
He ordered a pre-sentence report to look into Vicker's background before sentencing him on May 1.
Andrew Shaw prosecuting asked for an anti-social behaviour order to be included in the sentence to prevent Vickers from being offensive or abusive to the women or their families in the future.
Vickers was released on bail until May 1.
