Ahmed Mohsen, 25, appeared at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday 30 October where he pled guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a bladed article.

Officers were called to High Street, Newport, at around 3.40am on Sunday 23 April after the victim, a 24-year-old man, was found with injuries.

Detective Sergeant Wendy Davies, a supervising officer in the case said: “Ahmed Mohsen left the victim with serious injuries following the sustained attack.

“This was a frightening ordeal for everyone involved and I hope the victim can take some comfort from the fact that Mohsen is serving a significant custodial sentence.

“Knife crime can have devastating consequences and while it remains rare in Gwent, I hope this sentencing shows that violence will not be tolerated and robust action will be taken against those responsible.”
