They had pleaded guilty to a Section 18 at an earlier hearing before being sentenced last week at Stafford Crown Court.

  • Tyrone Ford, 23, of Mill Gardens, Smethwick, was jailed for 12 years
  • Liam Ford, 27, of Old Hawne Lane, Halesowen, was jailed for three years
  • Aaron Brown-Williams, 31, of Houghton Road in Grantham, was jailed for nine years

The incident happened on the evening of December 21 in 2014 when three broke into the flat of their victim before beating and stabbing him. They also stole items and his car in the incident.

Staffordshire Police’s DI Lesley Fowler said: “The attack was vicious and had the potential to cause severe injuries to the victim.

“Tracing the three offenders involved a lot of time, effort and investigative skill. It also required a considerable amount of co-operation from other forces, for which we are grateful.

“These sentences show that we will not tolerate people who try to use violence to settle disputes and they will be brought before the courts, no matter how hard they try to avoid capture.”
