VIDEO: Peterborough police release CCTV footage of 'nightmarish'moment a man is stabbed as two men are jailed
Peterborough police have released CCTV footage of the 'nightmarish' moment a man was stabbed in Peterborough.
The stabbing happened in Tyesdale, Bretton, Peterborough just after 2pm on 16 July, 2019.
The victim, a man in his 50s, didn't know his attackers - Donald Muns and Kyle Gilligan - but became involved in an argument with the two men- and suffered serious stab wounds in the 'horrific' attack..
The victim was sat with two friends when Donald Muns, 25, of Deerleap, Bretton, and his girlfriend Megan Sefton, 23, of the same address, walked past.
After returning from the nearby shop, Muns and Sefton overheard the group’s conversation and began shouting and insulting them.
Sefton shouted to one of the group that she was going to have them “shanked” and at this point the victim stood up in an effort to stop the threats.
Muns approached the victim, gave another verbal insult and asked him to stop “being aggressive”. Muns told the victim he would also be “shanked” and walked off to join his girlfriend.
Muns disappeared from view for about 10 minutes but returned, together with Kyle Gilligan, 27, of no fixed address.
Both men walked quickly towards the victim before splitting up - Muns walking to the left and Gilligan to the right, behind the man.
Muns approached the victim and tried to punch him in the head but the victim noticed he had a knife in his waistband and tried to push him away.
Muns pulled the kitchen knife from his waistband and while he did so Gilligan stabbed the victim twice in the back. Muns just missed the man’s forearm with his own knife.
Muns, 25, of Deerleap, Bretton and Gilligan, 27, of no fixed address were both arrested and charged in connection with the incident. They pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH) and were both jailed for five years yesterday.
