A dangerous teenager has been sentenced to nine years after a man was stabbed in the eye In Leyland.
We were called to Leyland Lane at 7.38pm on April 21 to reports a man had been stabbed.
Emergency services attended and found a man in his 20s with injuries to the head and body. He was taken to hospital where he was treated for life-changing injuries.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, a 17-year-old boy from Leyland – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was charged with attempted murder.
He appeared at Preston Crown Court on Monday (September 4) where he was sentenced to six years immediate custody, with a further three years extended licence period after a Judge deemed him to be dangerous.
