A teenager from Maidenhead has been jailed following a street knife attack that left a man needing emergency surgery in January.
George Lamont, of Boyn Valley Road, appeared at Reading Crown Court on Thursday and was sentenced to seven years in prison for wounding with intent and given a two-year sentence for posession of an offensive weapon.
The terms will be served concurrently.
The 19-year-old was also ordered to pay a £500 compensation order and a £120 fine.
He was arrested on Friday, Jan 25 after a man in his twenties was stabbed in the stomach in Norden Road and had to undergo emergency surgery at Wexham Park Hospital.
Lamont was due to face trial in June but changed his plea to guilty before the case began.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
All lines are currently blocked between Reading and London Paddington stations due to a person being hit by a train.
