Rushatharan Asok’s attacker David Clarke, 64, was jailed for 15 years on Monday.

In an incident which shocked Aylesbury, Clarke walked into the Bab’s Food and Wine store in Buckingham Street, and asked the 25-year-old assistant for help with his shopping.

The young man was happy to help, but as he was bending down to fill a bag, Clarke reached inside his jacket and produced a knife plunging it into Rushatharan’s neck.

Clarke fled, and it is thanks to the quick thinking of customers that the victim survived the attack, which was captured on CCTV. Rushatharan suffered serious injuries, and is still receiving hospital treatment.
