Taukeer Hussain, aged 24, jailed for five years for stabbing three people

Taukeer Hussain, aged 24, had downed three bottles of 40 per cent vodka and had snorted seven lines of cocaine before he committed the attacks in Viper Rooms down Carver Street on September 29 of last year.

Hussain stabbed Curtis Mitchell, a first year medic, as the student was out celebrating his birthday with flatmates.

He also stabbed another male, and a female University student, who has had her studies unsurprisingly affected, and has been left with a scar on her groin which makes her feel very insecure.

All three victims required treatment in hospital.

Hussain, of Fieldhead Road, Lowfields, pleaded guilty to unlawful and malicious wounding and possession of a bladed article on September 29.

Hussain was described as acting aggressively in the nightclub before he committed the attacks, and had been staring at the female victim when she confronted him.

He was branded a ‘danger to the community’ at Sheffield Crown Court.
