A man has been jailed for attempted murder after attacking another man in Bournemouth.
CCTV shows 60-year-old Kevin Boyle approaching his victim at a cashpoint on Old Christchurch Road in August last year, before attacking him with a knife in a case of mistaken identity. The victim needed 49 stitches for the 23 centimetre-long wound to his neck.
Boyle’s victim, an 18-year-old student, had been out celebrating his A level results, and had not been not involved in an earlier incident with Boyle outside a bar.
Boyle was found guilty following a trial at Winchester Crown Court and jailed for 21 years. He will also spend an additional five years on licence upon release.
