Johnny Joyce attacked the man at a house party in Hawthorn Drive, Glossop in the early hours of Tuesday 21 September.

The victim, who was 22 at the time, suffered a punctured lung and was stabbed in the back, legs and kidney.

Joyce went on the run and officers from Derbyshire worked with colleagues in Greater Manchester to trace him.

He was eventually arrested by officers from Greater Manchester Police on November 1, following a pursuit.

Joyce, of Stephen Close, Stalybridge, was later charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

He admitted the offence and was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on Friday 7 January.

We are bringing you this update as part of Operation Wintershield, which is a force wide, multi-agency operation focusing on reducing knife crime and serious violent crime across the county, especially amongst vulnerable groups such as children and young people.

The operation will run until the end of February 2022 and for its duration officers and staff will be sharing the excellent work that is going on to tackle the root cause of these often-devastating crimes.
