Man jailed over stab attack

26 April 2010, 12:09

A 25 year old found guilty of trying to murder a man stabbed 16 times in an alleyway near a Banbury nightclub has been jailed for at least nine years.

The 29 year old victim is still recovering from the injuries he suffered in Pepper Alley near Broad Street in October 2009.

Jamal Coleman (pictured), from Evenlode Close in Bicester, was convicted of attempted murder after a five-day trial at Oxford Crown Court.  He was sentenced on Monday 26 April 2010.

Detective Sergeant Mat Bick from Thames Valley Police said: "I’m pleased with the sentence, which I feel reflects the severity of the crime.

"Coleman has continued to deny that he set out to kill his victim, despite the ferocious and sustained nature of the attack and put his victim through the ordeal of having to testify in court.

"I hope that this will send out a clear message to anyone who carries a knife, or even considers carrying a knife, that there are severe consequences to your actions."
