Woman who confessed to stabbing man in Tunbridge Wells jailed

The man, who is in his 30s, was found by three teenagers at around 9.45pm and he told them he had been stabbed.

Neighbours gave him first aid before ambulance crews arrived and he was airlifted to a London hospital suffering three puncture wounds to his torso.

Police entered the flat where they found several knives with blood on.

Glew told officers someone else was responsible and she had simply tried to help the injured man.

She was arrested and an investigation revealed Glew had confessed to several witnesses she carried out the assault.

Glew appeared at Maidstone Crown Court, initially denying any wrongdoing, but later pleaded guilty to a charge of causing grievous bodily harm.

She was jailed for 21 months on Wednesday.

PC Jon Short of the West Kent Vulnerability Investigation Team said: "This was an utterly senseless attack which only by luck did not lead to more serious harm.

"Chloe Glew is a prolific offender with a lengthy history of convictions related to violent offences."
