A THUG who carried out brutal blade attacks on two men in Yoker has been jailed for six years.

Dale Maxwell pounced on David Fisher and Scott Bryan at a car park outside a flat in  Bulldale Street, Yoker on June 22, 2019.

The 27-year-old had stormed up to the property where his partner had been staying.

Maxwell, of Chancellor Street, Partick, was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow on Friday.

He had previously been convicted of assaulting both victims to the danger of their lives.

Jurors concluded Mr Bryan was also left permanently scarred.

Judge Sean Murphy QC told Maxwell: "You were looking for trouble when you went back there that evening.

"If you were concerned about a young girl in the flat, then there were other steps you could have taken.

"By attending there, matters got worse, because there was the incident with the window and the bottle or can but it's not clear what was thrown.

"One of the men had three injuries, having been struck with the knife, while the other had two knife wounds, but his injuries were less serious."

The trial had heard how Maxwell had tried to gain entry to the flat and banged on windows and a door, as well as repeatedly attempted to contact his partner.

He also pursued another woman while in possession of a knife.

Louise Arrol, defending, had earlier told the court that Maxwell had been in a long-term relationship with his partner.

Maxwell's solicitor added: "He maintains his position that it was not deliberate but knows he will be sentenced on these matters."
