Man sentenced after stabbing housemate with scissors in Milton Keynes

    Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been sentenced after he was convicted of Section 18 GBH wounding with intent.

    Ovidiu Vizitiu, aged 43, of Shenley Lodge, Milton Keynes, pleaded guilty to one count of GBH at Aylesbury Crown Court yesterday (22/9).

    He was sentenced to four years and three months’ imprisonment at the same hearing.

    The conviction and sentencing relate to an incident on 11th March this year.

    Officers were called to an address in Shenley Lodge, Milton Keynes, to reports of a stabbing at around 12.44am that morning.

    The victim, a man in his thirties, returned to the house he shared with Vizitiu and two other men.

    On his return, the victim was informed that Vizitiu has been drinking all day and messing around with kitchen knives.

    The victim found Vizitiu drunk on the floor in the kitchen before going to his room.

    Moments later Vizitiu ran to the victim’s room, kicked the door in and threatened to kill the victim.

    Vizitiu then lunged at the victim with a pair of scissors.

    The victim tried to defend himself but was stabbed a number of times by Vizitiu.

    The victim managed to escape upstairs and barricaded himself in. The police were called and Vizitiu was arrested.

    The victim received stab wounds to his arm, chest and legs. He was treated in hospital but has since been discharged.

    Investigating officer Detective Constable Scott Dempsey, of CID, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “Vizitiu carried out a vicious and unprovoked attack on his housemate.

    “It is only right that Vizitiu has been jailed as this was a serious assault that resulted in significant scarring and psychological issues suffered for the victim.

    “It was only by sheer luck the victim did not sustain life-threatening injuries.”
