Men Jailed Following Newmarket Stabbing

Two men have been sentenced to a total of four and a half years in prison for stabbing a man in the wrist in Newmarket.

20-year-old William Mackenzie, (pictured on the left) from Park Lane in Newmarket, and 18-year-old Kam Flynn, (pictured right) from Camps Road in Haverhill, pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding and have been handed jail terms at Ipswich Crown Court.
 
The offence happened between 11pm and 11.30pm on Friday 8 November 2013 in an alleyway off Park Avenue in Newmarket, where the victim had arranged to meet Flynn.
 
The victim was then approached by Flynn and Mackenzie who sprayed him in the face with an incapacitant spray, punched him to the ground and then stabbed him in the wrist with a knife.
 
Following the attack the victim was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge where he required surgery to remove the knife from his wrist. The victim is receiving ongoing treatment for this injury.
 
Mackenzie and Flynn were sentenced to terms of two and a half years and two years imprisonment respectively.
 
Investigating officer DC Ian Webb of Bury St Edmunds CID said: "This was a particularly nasty attack causing the victim a great deal of distress and leaving him requiring surgery.
 
"I hope this will act as a warning to those who would carry-out pre-mediated assaults such as this that the police will pursue them and put them before the courts to be dealt with appropriately."
