A Londoner who stabbed two men in Oxford has been sentenced to life.
Morgan Meragan, 23 of Camden, stabbed one man in the legs and the other man in the back and twice in his shoulder.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment and will serve a minimum of nine years.
Meragan was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Thursday last week having pleaded guilty to one count of grievous bodily harm with intent, one count of attempted robbery and one count of possession of an offensive weapon at the same court on December 20, 2016.
The knife-wielding attacker stabbed a 35-year-old man in the legs in Walton Crescent, on July 14, 2016, before stabbing a 22-year-old man in Jeune Street four days later in an attempted robbery.
Police officers also found Meragan in possession of a sheath knife in Granville Street, Swindon, on September 16 last year.
He was arrested that day and charged with the first stabbing offence the following day. Following these charges he was remanded into custody.
Whilst in custody he was charged with the further offences.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable George Atkinson of Force CID in Oxford, said: “These are extremely serious offences, and the imprisonment of Meragan will go some way to make the streets a safer place to be.”
