Police are welcoming the sentencing of a teenager following a stabbing in Southport in August 2021.
On Monday 23 August at around 1.40am, police received a report of an altercation on Scarisbrick Avenue.
Emergency services attended and the victim, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital for stab wounds.
Officers located arrested Adam-Neale on Southport Promenade. Following extensive CCTV enquiries, police found that he had stabbed the victim in his stomach with a piece of glass from a skip. Adam-Neale was later charged.
On Friday, 14 January, Jamal Adam-Neale, aged 16, of Falkner Street Liverpool was jailed for wounding with intent and two counts of common assault.
He was sentenced to four years, four months, following a guilty plea.
Detective Inspector Paul Gillies said: “This result shows that we will simply not tolerate such violence in or communities in Southport or anywhere on Merseyside.
“This was an utterly appalling attack which left a man seriously injured and I hope that Adam-Neale will take the time to reflect on the consequences of his actions while behind bars.
“As a Force, we are committed to working with the public and our partners to remove such violence from our streets. If you have any concerns about violence or knife crime in your community then please come to us, either directly or anonymously, and we will take action.”
