A man from Stratford who stabbed his victim following a confrontation over damaged cars has been jailed.
Kevin Selby, of Townley Court, had been challenged by the 30-year-old victim after a number of cars were damaged in Colchester on the morning of September 9.
As the victim climbed over the wall into a nearby car park, Selby stabbed him in the shoulder with a stanley knife then slashed him across the neck. He was taken to hospital but his injuries were not life-threatening.
Selby, 29, was arrested at Marks Tey station in Essex later that day.
He admitted GBH and wounding without intent and was sentenced today at Ipswich Crown Court to three years and nine months in prison.
