A 35-year-old man from Isleworth has been jailed for six years after being found guilty of GBH with intent after he stabbed another man.

James Martin Burton of Summerwood Road was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Monday, 13 December.

The court heard that he had attacked his male victim on the evening of Saturday 17 April.

The victim told police that Burton had stabbed him in the head on Summerwood Road following an earlier disagreement over money.

Burton was arrested just over 24 hours later following an extensive search operation by police. He was taken into police custody and charged the following day.

During a search of his home address, a heavily blood stained hooded top was found and a forensic examination matched the victim’s DNA profile on the outside lower right sleeve. Other blood spots matched Burton’s DNA.

During the evening of Friday, 23 April, a black handled knife was recovered from the roof area close to where the assault occurred.

A forensic examination revealed that blood found on the blade and handle matched the victim’s DNA profile and furthermore a swab taken from the knife’s handle revealed that majority of the DNA sample belonged to Burton and the victim.

Detective Constable Mitesh Mulji from the West Area Command Unit, who led the investigation, said, “Tackling knife crime remains a priority for the police and I am delighted that the jury carefully considered the evidence in front of them and were able to see through Burton’s lies.

“This was a particularly nasty and violent crime for which I am very pleased that we have been able to bring Burton to justice. A dangerous man will now spend a considerable amount of time in prison”.

“I would like to commend the victim for showing incredible courage and strength in supporting this prosecution. I hope this conviction and sentence brings comfort to him and his family.

“I would also like to thank the other agencies who assisted with this investigation including Hounslow Council and the forensic services, along with the many officers whose dedication has seen Burton jailed.”
