Dobgima Gwangwaa, 20, of Swale Close, stabbed a taxi driver outside Stevenage railway station at around 4.30pm on Saturday, September 8. The victim was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries.

Gwangwaa was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court yesterday after being found guilty of wounding with intent.

He was also sentenced to three months, running concurrently, for conspiracy to destroy property and theft – and a further three years on licence, meaning he will be monitored following his release and return to prison if he reoffends.
