Prison term for pub stabbing

A man who repeatedly stabbed a teenager who pulled a face at him in a pub last March was jailed for 14 years yesterday. Patrick Purcell, 40, of Ruislip, Middlesex, squirted CS gas into the 19-year-old's eyes, punched and kicked him and stabbed him 14 times as he begged for his life, the Old Bailey was told. He then walked away as if nothing had happened. Purcell was found guilty of attempted murder, unlawful wounding and assault.
