A man who stabbed a teenage boy outside a Chinese restaurant in March has been jailed. Kyle Wojtowych, 27, was arrested on the evening of 21 April last year after police received a 999-call reporting a stabbing in Station Road, March, Cambridgeshire.

The 17-year-old victim had been waiting outside the Purple Diamond for a friend when he was approached by Wojtowych just after 11pm.

Wojtowych, of Hundred Road, March, asked the boy how much money he had on him before pulling a knife and stabbing him through his left cheek.

The boy managed to run into the restaurant and call for help, before being taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon for treatment.

Police located Wojtowych in nearby Darthill Road at about 11.30pm where he was found still in possession of the knife.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court today (Friday) where he was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison after previously admitting attempted robbery, unlawful wounding, and possession of a knife in a public place.

He will also be subject to an extended licence period of three years upon his release from prison.

Detective Constable James Bennett, who investigated, said: “This was understandably a terrifying incident for a young man who was minding his own business.

“He has been left with a permanent scar on his face which will serve as a constant reminder of what happened that day, however I hope this conviction will provide some reassurance and help him to move on from the ordeal.”
