Officers spoke to the injured man but he did not wish to assist with the investigation. However, despite they gathered enough evidence to proceed with a prosecution.
On Monday, 15 December 2014 Shah was charged with Grevious Bodily Harm (GBH) with intent.
DC Nathan Burrows, who led the investigation, said: “This was a violent incident in which the victim suffered a serious injury.
“This sentence sends a very clear message to those who carry weapons and are intent on using them. We will not tolerate violence and will do everything to secure a prosecution and to ensure that justice is done.”
