Man sentenced for 28 years to prison for attempted murder


LEICESTER: A man has been sentenced to a total of 28 years’ imprisonment after stabbing four people in Wraysbury. Satya Thakor, aged 36, of Normanton Road, Leicester, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court today (3/2).

He was found guilty by unanimous verdict at the same court on Monday 16 December 2019 of three counts of attempted murder and one count of GBH with intent, Thames Valley Police have reported.

On 14 May 2019 Thakor attempted to murder a 58-year-old woman, a 34-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man at an address in Wraysbury by stabbing them several times with a knife. He also caused minor stab wounds to a 30-year-old woman. All the victims were known to Thakor. Thakor was charged with the offences on 27 May.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Sunny Sokhi based at Windsor police station, said: “This was a brutal attack in which Thakor tried to kill several people whom he knew by repeatedly stabbing them.

“They were at home during this – in a place where they should have had every right to feel safe. I can only imagine how terrifying this was for his victims and what they went through that night. It is fortunate that none of them were killed, but I know that the trauma of their ordeal will stay with them for a very long time.
