A 49-year-old man from Soham stabbed a man in an unprovoked attack at a petrol station forecourt.
Edward Parker, of Orchard Row, stabbed his 34-year-old victim at the BP station, in Fordham Road, Soham, on September 4, last year.
The attack happened inside the shop area, as the victim, who was unknown to Parker, looked at sandwiches in the chiller.
Without warning or provocation, Parker stabbed the victim in the right side of his abdomen with a large knife.
The 4cm-deep wound required surgery.
