A NEWPORT man has received a prison sentence of 11 years and six months following an assault on another man in Newport city centre.
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.”
