Officers arrested Garrett at his home shortly after the attack, with more than a dozen officers working rapidly to collect the evidence required to ensure the Crown Prosecution Service agreed to charge him with attempted murder and robbery.

Remanded in custody, Garrett appeared at Chelmsford Crown court on Monday 18 March and pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent and robbery, which was accepted by the CPS.

He was sentenced to 13 years and six months in prison at the same court today, Thursday 6 June.
