A judge has praised the actions of a woman and her friend who both grabbed knives and chased off a taser-wielding robber as he attacked her fiancé.
Pranee Rice, aged 29, can be seen on CCTV running after would-be robber Paul Grimshaw after he attacked her husband-to-be, Nigel Blackburn, at their Leicestershire home.
Judge Simon Hammond jailed Grimshaw for eight years at Leicester Crown Court, and praised the two women for their bravery in facing the attacker.
In an interview with the Leicester Mercury, Pranee said: "We’re proud the judge praised our actions. It was very frightening but we’d do it again."
