Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a woman has been convicted of GBH with intent in Oxford.
Stacey Bilverstone, aged 42 of no fixed abode was found guilty by a unanimous jury at Oxford Crown Court today (03/12).
On 25 June this year at around 9pm, a man was fleeing his flat during an attack from Bilverstone in Kendall Crescent, Cutteslowe, when he fell to the ground, she then jumped on his back and repeatedly stabbed him.
Her victim, a 57-year-old man suffered five minor stab wounds to the back of his neck and one major stab wound to his throat, he was taken to hospital and required surgery. He has since been discharged.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Victoria Hopkins of Force CID in Oxford, said: “This was a vicious attack by Bilverstone.
“She stabbed her victim, who was already on the ground, several times in the back and then caused a severe injury with another wound to his throat.
“Bilverstone showed no regards for this man’s life and she caused horrific and almost fatal injuries.
“Along with that, she has not taken responsibility for her actions on that day, causing the victim the additional ordeal of a trial where he has had to relive those dreadful moments, which could so easily have been his last.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the victim in this case for his incredible bravery and support throughout this difficult investigation.
“Now Bilberstone has been found guilty, I hope this is the start he needs to begin to re-build his life.”
Bilverstone will be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on 17 January 2019.
