A man has been jailed after pleading guilty to a stabbing in Great Yarmouth last January.
Jeremiah Abodunrin, 22, of Plumstead Common Road in London, arranged to meet a 27-year-old on Blackfriars Road on the evening of January 5 2017 in order to sell Class A drugs.
Upon meeting, Mr Abodunrin lunged at the victim and stabbed him in the chest with a knife.
The victim, who was living in Great Yarmouth at the time, was able to run away and received surgery to repair a single puncture wound to the chest.
Mr Abodunrin was sentenced at Kings Lynn Crown Court to seven years and three months in prison.
