A Grantham man has been jailed for seven years after a knife attack in the town.

32-year-old Luke Edward Donnelly of Portmarnock Way, Grantham, was jailed for the attack on a 33-year-old local man at an address in William Street on November 7 last year.

The court heard that Donnelly broke into the property and slashed his victim to the face, wounding him. Donnelly pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

DI Pete Grayson said: “This is good result for the victim and people living in Grantham. We hope it demonstrates our commitment to tackling serious violence across the county.”
