A Coventry man has been jailed for 12 years after a stabbing in a nightclub.
The attack happened at Bar S7ven Nightclub in Coventry city centre on Monday 4 June last year after a disagreement between the 25-year-old victim and another man who was friends with Maher.
The court heard that the victim became involved in a heated argument with the man and 25-year-old Maher then stepped in and stabbed him in the stomach with the 12"-18" long blade.
After the attack he managed to run off and collapsed near to a local supermarket where he was found by paramedics with his intestines exposed. He was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries and has now made a full recovery.
A major investigation was launched and Maher later handed himself in to Willenhall Police Station and was arrested and charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm - but he denied carrying out the attack.
However, after the five-day trial he was found guilty by a jury at Birmingham Crown Court and jailed on Friday 22 November.

A 21-year-old man who said he carried a knife around for ‘protection’ has been sentenced to life at Birmingham Crown Court today, after stabbing his girlfriend’s step-father to death in April.
Luke Ayres stabbed 41-year-old Marcus Wye eight times, including a fatal blow that pierced his heart as a longstanding feud between the two ended in the stairwell of a block of flats in Druids Heath, Birmingham.
Ayres admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility today and was sentenced to life imprisonment, with an indeterminate sentence.
Mr Wye was found by police on April 5 this year in the communal area of his eighth-floor flat at Drews House, Netheravon Close. Despite officers and paramedics providing emergency first aid he was declared dead just after 10.30pm.
Ayres, who regularly carried a knife around claiming it was "for protection" had previous altercations with Mr Wye on numerous occasions in the past.
Armed police stopped Ayres in Redhill Road, West Heath, shortly after the stabbing where he was found to have traces of blood on his jeans. Police later recovered a hunting knife with a four-inch blade, believed to be the murder weapon.
