Lloyd Barrett, 47, attacked his victim outside the Misty Moon pub
A Harlesden man who stabbed a pub reveller for pestering his girlfriend has been jailed for six years.
Lloyd Barrett, 47, of Park Road, knifed his victim in the chest following an argument outside the Misty Moon pub in Manor Park Road, Harlesden, last October.
Harrow Crown Court heard the 47-year-old had turned up to collect his partner at around 9.35pm where he ended up arguing with the victim after his girlfriend accused him of harassment.
Barrett got into his car to drive off when the victim banged on his bonnet so he reversed his car, mounting the pavement, and drove at the victim forcing him to leap out of the way.
Barrett drove away but came back 35 minutes and stabbed the victim in the left side of his chest as he stood in Manor Park Road.
He fled on foot down Crownhill Road towards Harlesden Gardens.
Barrett was subsequently arrested, charged and has convicted of wounding with intent and dangerous driving.
Detective Sergeant Owen White, from Brent Police, said: “This crime involved the suspect using gratuitous and unnecessary violence against the victim. The sentences reflected the severity of the crime.”
