Jordan Anderson, aged 30, has been convicted of attempted murder after stabbing his ex-girlfriend fifteen times.
He has been sentenced to life imprisonment, with a minimum of 13 years and 7 months’ imprisonment.
On 12th March 2019, Anderson approached a 24-year-old woman who was known to him, outside the Co-Op supermarket in London Road, Headington, Oxford.
He asked to speak to her in her car and when she refused, he pulled a small kitchen knife from his pocket and stabbed her 15 times in her shoulder, neck and head.
One stab wound penetrated her back and entered her spinal column. He then fled the scene leaving her bleeding on the floor. The incident happened in front of a number of members of the public, including a number of primary school children.
Several members of the public came to her aid and provided first aid until emergency services arrived at the scene.
