A teenager who stabbed a man after he refused to hand over his bike has been sentenced.
The 17-year-old, from Dagenham, was ordered to spend two years and six months in youth detention for the stabbing.
Basildon Crown Court heard during Friday’s sentencing that he approached his 18-year-old victim in High Street, Grays, on November 16 last year.
When he refused to get off his bike, he was stabbed in the leg, but managed to ride home.
He went out a short while later to try and find the 17-year-old and during a struggle, was stabbed in the chest and back.
