A man who slashed his girlfriend’s ex-partner with a knife causing a large cut to his face has been sentenced for a total of 12 years for section 18 GBH.

Ross Madsen also known as Ross Robertson, 29, from Wicklow Avenue in Grimsby was sentenced at Grimsby Crown Court to 7 years in jail with an extra 5 years to be served on licence.

It follows an incident on Wednesday 18 April 2018 on Wicklow Avenue where his victim sustained a deep cut to his lip which needed 10 stitches.

Madsen had chased the victim, who’s now 33, in the street shouting threats before swinging a knife at him causing the injury.

Ross Madsen must serve at least two thirds of his sentence behind bars.
