A vicious thug was jailed for 5 years this week after using a knife on his father, a police officer and a police dog.
Asher Picort, aged 21, fled his house in Ispwich after stabbing his father several times in the stomach with a large kitchen knife. He was found by officers incuding PC Steve Jay, a Suffolk Police dog handler.
PC Jay sent in Police Dog Aman to disarm Picot who stabbed the dog several times. He then stabbed the officer in the shoulder before being disarmed and arrested. The officer and dog made full recoveries. He pleaded guilty to offences of unlawful wounding on his father, GBH with intent on the officer and criminal damage to the dog.
He was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment. We’ll be lucky if he serves half that.
Glad to see the courts sending out a clear message that knife crime will not be tolerated.
