Man jailed for stabbing - Leighton Buzzard

10/06/2016

A man who plunged a large kitchen knife into the abdomen of another man in a block of flats in Leighton Buzzard has today, Friday, 10 June 2016, been jailed for nine years.

In the early hours of Saturday, 21 November last year, Fabreece Mullings armed himself with two knives after hearing how a friend had been involved in an altercation with the victim.

Mullings, who was in Luton at the time, then drove to Clarence Street, Leighton Buzzard, where on the staircase he confronted the victim. In an act of savage brutality he plunged the larger of the two knives into the stomach area of the victim, before pulling out the bloodstained blade and making off. The victim collapsed having suffered a ten centimetre deep wound, which caused damage to his liver and gall bladder. He suffered blood clots on his lungs and underwent four operations, and remained in intensive care at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge until 18 December and was discharged a week later.

A woman living in one of the flats nearby was trained in first aid and her prompt action, staunching the blood flow with towels, probably saved his life.

Today, Mullings, aged 24, a personal trainer of Robinson Street, Bletchley, Bucks, pleaded guilty at Luton Crown Court to wounding the victim with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm (GBH).

Judge Philip Bartle was told that the victim had suffered life changing injuries, which meant he could no longer work as a labourer.
