The face of a High Wycombe knifeman who stabbed his victim in a drug deal gone wrong has been revealed.

Police have released the mugshot of Jerome Dublin, who was jailed for four years and four months on Friday after he stabbed Amos Bacchus three times on May 20, 2020.

Dublin, aged 25, of Carrington Road, denied that he was responsible for the violent attack in North Drive, Holtspur, but was found guilty of wounding and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm following a trial at Amersham Law Courts.

The court heard how Dublin met with Mr Bacchus in North Drive at 11.45pm and the pair had an argument about a supposed drug debt.

Mr Bacchus took to the stand to tell the jury that Dublin had sold him short when he paid £100 for cocaine from the dealer a few weeks earlier and had asked Dublin to come over so he could pay back what he owed.

The pair ended up arguing and Dublin “hit” Mr Bacchus three times. It was only later that Mr Bacchus realised that Dublin had been holding a knife, and that he had been stabbed.

Dublin ran off after stabbing Mr Bacchus, who chased after his attacker, throwing a brick at Dublin’s getaway car, shattering the window.

At this point Mr Bacchus noticed that he was “drenched” with blood and called himself an ambulance. He recovered after a stay in hospital.

Throughout the trial, Dublin had denied being the knifeman and claimed that he had been at home playing PlayStation and watching YouTube on the day of the stabbing. He was not able to provide a convincing alibi.

After guilty verdicts were delivered by the jury, Judge Geoffrey Payne sentenced Dublin to four years and four months behind bars.
