A violent thug donned a stab vest, armed himself with knives and went on the rampage after being called to a party.

Stuart Jarman, 47, frantically stabbed, slashed and cut two men for reasons that remain somewhat of a mystery.

Jarman, from the St Austell area, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence having pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Prosecuting the case, Ramsay Quaife described how Jarman’s co-accused Jordan Simpson had already been given a suspended sentence for his part in the incident after pleading guilty to affray.

In October last year Simpson was at an address in St Blazey with his girlfriend and others.

One of the victims spotted a knife perturbing from the stab vest.

A flurry of violence ensued when Jarman punched one of the victims to the face as Simpson attacked the other.

Jarman then removed the knife from the vest and cut at both men as Simpson continued to land punches, kicks and stamps.

Both men suffered cuts and stab wounds to the body and Jarman attempted to tie one of their legs up with cable ties.

When the violence came to an end and Jarman eventually left, he was heard to say “you better not snitch, I’ve put a hit on your house”.

Despite blood being found all over the property, neither man suffered very serious injury but both do still suffer physically and psychologically from what happened.

Representing Jarman, Hollie Gilbery said: “He expressed motivation to address his offending issues which mainly relates to substance misuse.DON’T MISSWearing skirts, sunglasses or boots could land drivers with a £5k fineAir ambulance sent to scene of incident in Looe – updatesBroken down caravan sparks huge queues on A30 – updates

“Although convicted in 2005 (another GBH with intent conviction) he didn’t appear in front of the courts until 2020. He recognises cocaine and alcohol misuse are part and parcel of his offending behaviour as well as his ability to manage stress in his life.”

Sentencing Jarman, Judge Robert Linford said: “On October 31 you entered an address in St Blazey due to a dispute between some of the households.

“You turned up clearly expecting trouble as you were wearing a stab vest and carrying a knife.

“There was a melee of sorts in the house and during the early stages it is difficult to work out who is to blame.

“But the straight fact is that at some point you produced a knife and things escalated. You stabbed, cut and slashed both victims and the effect of the attack continues to live with them.

“You have a poor record but since 2005 have been completely out of trouble. You started a business and employed 28 people. Then the general economic climate took a dip you tried to help them by giving them work around your property. Since your remand you have taken all the courses available.”

Judge Linford jailed Jarman for six years and four months but warned if he commits another act of GBH with intent he’ll be jailed for life.
