Man jailed after ‘ferocious’ knife attack at Sheffield party
A Sheffield man, who violently stabbed a man at a party in Sheffield this year, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail.
Warsame Ibrahim, 27, of Dorset Street, Sheffield pleaded guilty at Sheffield Crown Court on 31 October after a stabbing took place after a night out in May this year, leaving a 29 year-old man with life threatening injuries.
South Yorkshire Police attended a report from members of the public of a man stabbed and collapsed in the street on Fox Hill Road just before 8am.
Following enquiries, detectives attended an address on Edge Well Way where a party had taken place after those involved had been on a night out.
A thorough search resulted in the discovery of two blood stained cushion covers in the washing machine, along with two knives and a large ‘Rambo-style’ knife under the same sofa.
Detective Constable Arron Connolly, from Sheffield’s CID team, said: “This was a violent attack that left a man fighting for this life after being stabbed multiple times, including one near the heart.
“Ibrahim has been brought to justice for his actions and is now behind bars for what was a ferocious attack that could have left a man dead.
“Our message to those intent on carrying and using knives is clear – drop the knife before you do irreparable damage.”
