Pair Bound And Locked Their Victims And Broke Teeth And A Toe During Burglary
Soham Man Convicted Of GBH
A Soham man's been found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
49 year-old Edward Parker, of Orchard Row, stabbed his 34 year-old victim at the BP station, in Fordham Road, Soham, on September 4, last year.
The attack happened inside the shop area, as the victim, who was unknown to Parker, looked at sandwiches in the chiller.
Without warning or provocation, Parker stabbed the victim in the right side of his abdomen with a large knife.
The 4cm-deep wound required surgery.
Parker was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm today (May 7), following a trial at King's Lynn Crown Court.
DC Peter Ware said:
"This was an unprovoked and vicious attack, which resulted in a significant injury for its victim and a great deal of distress to several witnesses. Luckily, incidents of this nature are extremely rare and this was an isolated event.
I hope this result today will give the victim some comfort that justice has been done."
