A Preston teenager has been jailed for stabbing another teenage boy eight times.


Dale Warburton, 17, from Ingol, attacked the 15-year-old boy with a knife near a bus stop on Cadley Causeway.

The incident, in January, saw the teenager stabbed in the back and side causing a partially collapsed lung.

Warburton, of Clevedon Road, will spend six years and eight months in a young offenders institution.

He pleaded guilty to section 18 wounding and possession of an offensive weapon at an earlier hearing at Preston Crown Court.

Lancashire Police welcomed the sentence given on Friday.

DC Nigel Marler from Preston CID said: “This was a violent and aggressive attack, which left the victim with significant injuries.

“I am pleased with the sentence given which reflects the severity of the incident.

“Any act of violence will not be tolerated and we will continue to do all we can to bring any offenders to justice.”

Warburton has also been given an indefinite restraining order against the victim.
