The postman was so scared he asked a member of the public to accompany him on the round.
Chaloner returned shortly afterwards and walked after Mr Voyce while brandishing a knife and fork, so the postman took refuge in a doctor's surgery.
Chaloner, of St Johns Avenue, Churchdown, then went home, where he was arrested by the police. Officers found cannabis at the property.
He appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court yesterday and admitted charges of assault, using threatening and abusive language, possession of a knife in a public area, and possession of Cannabis.
He was released on conditional bail until he is sentenced at the same court on March 28.
