Graham Troup was sentenced to eight years in prison
A thug who left his victim with multiple injuries in a vicious, unprovoked knife attack in Chatham has been jailed.
Graham Troup, 41, of Constitution Road, attacked a man in his 40s at a home in the Luton Road area in June this year, leaving him with wounds to his head, arms and hands.
Officers attended the address and found Troup hiding in a nearby property.
He was arrested and appeared at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday where he was sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm.
Two years of his sentence will be served on licence.
Investigating officer detective constable Amy Edwards said: “This sustained and motiveless attack was launched while the victim was in the safety of their own home.
“Troup is a clear danger to the public, and I would like to thank the victim for their bravery and their help in ensuring he was given a long sentence.”
