Colin Williams, 23-year-old, has been condemned to nine years in prison after being found guilty of aggravated burglary and assault.
Willams, from Poplars in Warrington, and Hulme, from Manchester, sent a man, 23-year-old, messages on Facebook. These messages were threatening.
After the messages, Williams went to the victim’s house in just a minute.
According to Cheshire Police’s statement, Williams’s victim, who has not been named, climbed out of the kitchen window and hung onto the ledge to hide from him.
Despite the victim’s best efforts, Williams saw him and shot him with a sharp object, and the victim fell onto the floor.
At the same time, the victim’s girlfriend, 22-year-old, had already run away from the flat to call for help.
Detective Constable Rob Thorpe said: “I am pleased the jury has convicted Williams and justice has been served for the victim who has been fully supportive throughout the case.
“Williams left him in complete fear. He felt he had no choice but to cling onto the window ledge to try and avoid detection. Williams knew he was hanging out of the window, and still, his hand was struck, which meant he fell from a considerable height and sustained serious injuries to his feet,’ continued.
“Despite being in considerable pain, he fought through this and managed to get help from the public who called police.”
