Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been imprisoned for GBH and weapon offences at Reading Crown Court.

Ismail Khan, aged 27, of Richmond Crescent in Slough, was jailed on Tuesday (9/10) for four and a half years after being found guilty of Section 20 grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon.

He stood trial at Reading Crown Court for five days and was convicted on Friday 21 September this year.

At 9pm on Tuesday 20 March , Khan attacked a 33-year-old man on Stratfield Road in Slough, stabbing him four times.

The victim was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital, but the injuries were not life threatening and he received stitches.

Khan was charged two days later on Thursday 22 March.

Investigating Officer Detective Constable Richard Ayres, of Force CID at Slough, said: “This was a vicious attack on the victim, who was lucky not to sustain more serious injuries.

“The actions of Ismail Khan demonstrate that he is a danger to the public.

“I would like to thank the victim and witnesses in this case for their support and bravery during our investigation.”
