A man has been found guilty of attempted murder following a serious assault in Portsmouth in February 2022.
Shortly after 2.30pm on Monday 28 February we were called to a report that a man had been seriously assaulted at an address on Middle Street.
A 33-year-old man from Southsea was located with stab wounds to his chest, face and hands.
He was taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment and was later discharged following life-saving surgery.
Sherwan Ali, 27, of Middle Street, was arrested at the scene and later charged with attempted murder.
He denied the offence and was remanded into custody ahead of a trial, which began at Portsmouth Crown Court on Monday 13 February.
The court heard how Ali had stabbed the victim, who was known to him, in the chest and face, causing serious life-threatening injuries.
The jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict on Friday (17 February). Ali is next due to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court for sentencing on Thursday 13 April.
