David Cowell Struck 5 Year-Old On Shared Driveway
A man has been jailed for six years for wounding a man in a stabbing in Milton Keynes.
Kyle Fabian (pictured), 20, from Marina Drive, Wolverton, pleaded guilty to one count of wounding and was sentenced to six years in jail at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday 23 September 2013.
Co-defendant, Brendan Powell, aged 18, of Western Road, Wolverton, pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm and was given an eight month suspended sentence at the same court.
The men were convicted over a stabbing on a footpath off Windsor Street, Wolverton, at about 3.30pm on Sunday 4 August 2013.
Police said a confrontation occurred between Fabian and Powell and the victim, an 19-year-old man, during which the victim was stabbed.
The victim sustained four life threatening puncture wounds to his chest and was airlifted to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. He was subsequently discharged from hospital.
Speaking after sentencing, DC John Swallow, of Thames Valley Police CID, said: “The attack took place on a busy sunny Sunday afternoon. It was witnessed by many children and their parents, who have been left traumitised by the incident.
“I would like to thank all the witnesses who came forward; their courage has resulted in the successful convictions of these two defendants.
“The victim, who was airlifted to hospital, owes his life to the quick thinking members of public and emergency services.
“The severity of the victim’s injuries was reflected in the sentences passed by Judge Sheridan. Thankfully these types of incidents are rare in Milton Keynes.”
A Serious Case Review has been published into the death of a six-month-old baby girl, attacked in her mother’s home by an illegal pitbull-type dog two years ago.
