Two men jailed after stabbing in Fallowfield

The stabbing on Wilmslow Road raised questions over safety in Fallowfield

Two men have been jailed for a total of eight years and nine months after being convicted of a stabbing a man in Fallowfield last year.

The attack took place on Wilmslow Road directly opposite Revolution Bar. The two men stabbed their victim, leaving blood on the road.

The two attackers, Kemron Aberdeen and Samin Ghulamhan pleaded guilty at Manchester Crown Court on the 21st November.

Aberdeen admitted to Assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent, landing him with six years and nine months in prison. Ghalamhan also pleaded guilty and received a two-year sentence.

Their attack in October 2012, left a man with a stab wound to the leg and injuries to his neck.

The attackers and the victim had been attending a house party on Ladybarn Road in Fallowfield and following a dispute the situation escalated.

At 4am an officer on patrol found the victim collapsed on the main road, the road was then shut and the victim was taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries.

When established that the victim had been attending the party on Ladybarn Road, the police went to the address and identified Aberdeen and Ghalamhan as suspects. Aberdeen was found with blood on his clothing and a hand injury.

Detective Constable Matthew Smith said, “The cause of the incident appears to be a something-and-nothing argument at the party that has resulted with the victim being stabbed”.

Police have also commented on the seriousness of the incident as both attackers were carrying knives, “There was no need for things to escalate the way they did and once a weapon is brought into the equation the severity of what is happening as well as the potential consequences instantly increases”.

Whilst the victim suffered serious injuries they were not life threatening, although according to the police the attack could have resulted in a fatality.
