Appalling CCTV shows a man get stabbed in the lung during a frenzied knife attack through a car passenger window in Wolverhampton.
In the clip, recorded in Nordley Road, a man in a hooded blue and black jacket runs towards a car parked in the road.
The man then lunges a knife through the open passenger window and repeatedly stabs the victim.
He even grabs hold of the car door, apparently to get better leverage.
Trying to flee on foot, three men pile out of the car and the knifeman charges at the passenger again, stabbing him in the back as he rolls over on the floor.
Fabian Nelson-Brown, who has been convicted of the stabbing, carried out the sickening crime on March 23, Birmingham Live reports.
Luckily the 38-year-old victim was taken straight to hospital where he was treated for three knife wounds, one of which had punctured his lung.
Despite the seriousness of the injuries, he has since made a full recovery, West Midlands Police revealed.
Nelson-Brown, from Thetford Gardens, Wednesfield, made off in a waiting car but was arrested just over a week later after CCTV and an ID parade identified him.
After a week-long trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court last week, where the 21-year-old denied any involvement, he was found guilty.
Nelson-Brown will now spend the next 10 years behind bars, according to a statement by West Midlands Police.
Another man, who was driving the car Nelson-Brown escaped in, stood trial alongside him, but was found not guilty by a jury.
Detective Sergeant Darren Brown, from force CID, said: “This was a totally unprovoked and unexpected attack on the victim.
“He was lucky to escape with his life or at the very least more serious injury.
“We continue our fight against knife crime across our regions, but convictions like this are only part of the story.
“We’re working with schools, parents and others to get the message out about the devastating impact violence has on lives.”
