Prison For Man Who Stabbed Policeman
A man who stabbed a police officer with a pair of scissors has been jailed for eight years.
42 year old, Craig Goddard, of Surrey Road, Huntingdon, turned on the traffic officer after being caught stealing meat from Marks and Spencer in St Neots on July 14, last year.
Staff at the shop had alerted PC Leigh Fenton, who was passing the store, when he approached him in East Street, Goddard pulled out a pair of scissors and launched a frenzied attack.
Two off duty officers, a PSCO and someone from the shop had to come to his aid.
Goddard had denied causing grievous bodily harm with intent but was convicted in a trial at Huntingdon Crown Court.
Detective Constable Martin Brocklebank said: 'Goddard armed himself with a weapon and was prepared to use it on anyone who tried to stop him stealing from the store. This sort of attack demonstrates the dangers that every officer faces in their day to day work.'
