A man who stabbed his partner in St Albans has been jailed for nine years and nine months.
Michael Summerville, 55, attacked his boyfriend in the St Albans city centre in November last year.
Police were called to St Peter’s Street in the early hours of November 27 to reports of multiple stab wounds by a man.
Upon arrival, they found Summerville’s partner who had three stab wounds, one in his eye, chest and back.
He was taken by air ambulance to a London hospital, and although he didn’t sustain any life threatening injuries, he claims damage to his eye affects his mental health.
Following the attack, CCTV captured Summerville throwing the weapon into a drain. He was arrested later.
Summerville pleaded guilty at St Albans Crown Court of wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, and was jailed for just under 10 years.
