A Rotherham man has been handed a prison sentence after being found guilty of a serious assault which took place in January this year.
25-year-old Jake Bartholomew-Mann was sentenced to 12 years in prison after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm at Sheffield Crown Court today (30 April 2019).
On the evening of 1 January 2019, Bartholomew-Mann entered the home of a 37-year -old disabled man, and in an unprovoked attack, stabbed the man repeatedly resulting in injuries which required a three-week stay in hospital and reconstructive surgery.
Detective Inspector Andrew Knowles welcomed the sentence: "This incident has had a profound effect on the victim, they are still receiving treatment for their injuries months after the attack.
“I am satisfied with the result of today’s sentencing and I would like to commend the victim for their bravery following what was a horrible and violent attack.”
