A knifeman who attacked and injured three people has been jailed.

Kyal Moore, 31, of Warwick Road in Edmonton, was jailed for 12 years at Wood Green Crown Court on Wednesday after admitting to three counts of grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent and possession of an offensive weapon.

On January 28 at around 3.40am, Moore with another person approached two men outside of Socialite bar in Muswell Hill Broadway and after a brief exchange, slashed them and, as he made off with the knife, wounded another man a short distance down the road.

The first two men, aged 25 and 23 years-old, were taken to hospital with slash injuries to their heads, the former requiring surgery to his ear. The third man, aged 34, suffered a stab wound to the neck.

DC Rob Wrightson of Haringey CID said: "This was an incredibly violent, unprovoked knife attack on several people enjoying their night out which could have had far more tragic consequences.

"The reckless violence used by Moore and the severity of the attack was recognised by the judge who imposed a substantial jail sentence."

A fourth man, believed to in his late 20s, was also taken to hospital to treat cuts to his head, and though police believe he was also injured during these incidents, officers could not trace him following his discharge from hospital.

Moore was arrested on June 21 and denied involvement, but was charged the next day and admitted the crimes in Wood Green Crown Court on July 21.

The second suspect involved has not been traced.

None of the men's injuries were considered life threatening.
