Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Following a Thames Valley Police investigation a man and a boy have been sentenced today (03/06) after they were convicted in connection with two incidents in Oxford.

It follows a trial which concluded on 26 April at Oxford Crown Court.

The convictions and sentencings are in connection with two incidents in Oxford. On 22 November 2018, at around 11.35pm, a 40-year-old man was approached by a group of young people in Old Road.

One of the youths demanded his wallet and another of the boys then threatened the man with a knife. The victim was unhurt and nothing was stolen.

On the same day (22/11) at around 11.50pm a 44-year-old man was walking along Wood Farm Road. He was approached by the same group of people.

The victim sustained stab wounds to his hands, arms and abdomen which caused a laceration to his liver, an injury to his lung and a severed artery. He was treated by paramedics from South Central Ambulance Service and taken to hospital.

Nothing was stolen by the offenders during the attack.

The victim has since been discharged and is still recovering from his injuries.
