A BLOODIED man who staggered into a Winton takeaway had been repeatedly stabbed with a shattered wine bottle, a court has heard.

Thomas Johnson was attacked at a home near Subway in Wimborne Road, the area's main high street, shortly at around 6.30pm on July 28 this year.

He managed to leave the address and get to KFC, some 450 feet away, to raise the alarm.

This week, Mr Johnson's attacker, 29-year-old Jesley Barrett, was jailed for ten years for the vicious assault.

Barrett, 28 and of Old Christchurch Road in Bournemouth, appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday to be sentenced after admitting a section 18 wounding with intent.

The victim, who is in his 20s, had been at an address in Wimborne Road when he got into a row with Barrett.

Barrett picked up a wine bottle and hit Mr Johnson over the head with it.

He then punched him.

A witness saw the defendant hold the smashed wine bottle by the neck and stab the other man twice with it.

Mr Johnson was also stabbed a third time in his back as he fled the property.

He ran to the KFC, where staff called an ambulance for him. The air ambulance landed on Winton Rec and he was flown to hospital with serious injuries, including stab wounds to his head, shoulder, back and torso, as well as a severe cut to his hand and finger.

Police rushed to Wimborne Road, and found Barrett at the same address. He was arrested and initially charged with attempted murder, although the charge was later downgraded.

Detective Constable Steve Davis, of Bournemouth CID, said: “This was a violent attack with a dangerous weapon that left Barrett’s victim with significant lasting injuries that continue to require treatment.

“We will not tolerate violent offending of this nature and will do all we can to ensure those responsible are identified and brought before the courts.”
