A man, who stabbed another man six times in the chest and head in Radford, has been sentenced to eleven years in prison.
Attilla Luzsanyi denied wounding with intent earlier this month but was convicted following a five-day trial at Nottingham Crown Court.
The 54-year-old, formerly of Player Street in Nottingham, was sentenced yesterday (Thursday 13 July 2017) to serve a custodial term of eleven years and a four year extended license period after release.
The court heard how in January, Luzsanyi had been drinking with two other men when he fell out with one of them and for some unknown reason stabbed the other man with a kitchen knife multiple times.
Two officers on patrol came across the victim when he stumbled out of the address in Player Street. They quickly called for backup and an ambulance, whilst carrying out first aid to the victim. When more officers arrived they were able to gain entry the room where the stabbing had taken place resulting in the prompt arrest of Luzsanyi.
The victim was taken to hospital and managed to make a full recovery.
PC Ian Walker who led the investigation said: “This was a nasty attack where Luzsanyi lashed out at the victim for no particular reason and could have easily taken his life. I’d like to pay particular thanks to the officers on patrol who without a doubt, saved the victim from dying that night. Their quick and decisive action led, not only to the offender being arrested straight away, but also vital evidence being since which contributed to the lengthy sentence. I’m pleased with the sentence and grateful that a man, capable of such violence, is now off the streets and behind bars.”
