Two men have been convicted after bursting into a house and slashing a man and woman with a knife.

The victims were taken to hospital for treatment following the aggravated burglary in Philip Road, Newark, at 7.42pm on 18 January 2019. The man, 49, suffered slash wounds to his arms and head and the woman, 45, suffered ‘defence style’ slash injuries to her hands and was hit on the head with a ceramic mug. Their injuries were not life-threatening or life-altering but left them extremely shaken.

John Price, 32, formerly of Turner Lane, Boughton, was found guilty of aggravated burglary, causing grievous bodily harm with intent and causing actual bodily harm following a three-day trial at Nottingham Crown Court, which concluded yesterday (Wednesday 14 August).

They have both been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing on 5 September.
