A man who pleaded guilty to stabbing three people in Slough has been jailed for 20 years.

Asad Khan, 19, of Pursers Court, Slough, was jailed at Reading Crown Court on Monday, September 3.

At a previous hearing he pleaded guilty to one count of section 18 grievous bodily harm, two counts of section 20 grievous bodily harm and one count of possessing a pointed/bladed article in a public place.

Just before 7pm on November 18, 2016, Khan attacked three men, one aged 19 and two aged 21, in Pursers Court.

Two of the victims received stab wounds to the head and legs, while the third victim received severe stab wounds to their arms, leg and torso.

Khan was arrested on the day of the incident and charged on August 15 last year.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Stuart Malham of Force CID based at Slough police station, said: “This was a horrific attack on three innocent members of the public who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The motive for the attack appears to be mistaken identity.

“The actions of Asad Khan demonstrate he is a violent and dangerous individual and the sentence reflects this.

“I would like to thank the victims for their continued support and courage throughout the investigation. I hope they can now move on from this extremely traumatic incident.”
