He will have to serve a further two years on licence.

DC Amy Edwards said: “This sustained and motiveless attack was launched while the victim was in the safety of their own home.

“Troup is a clear danger to the public, and I would like to thank the victim for their bravery and their help in ensuring he was given a long sentence.”
