A teenager has been locked up for two years after he stabbed another man in the buttock in a confrontation after they left a party in Almondbury.
Leeds Crown Court heard Nathan Pimm was already under a suspended sentence for a drugs offence when the assault happened in February.
The complainant Daniel Jennings had been at the same party on February 7 in Rockley Close, Almondbury and he said he had known Pimm about five years without any problems between them.
Simon Batiste prosecuting said the party continued through the night and around 6.15 am Mr Jennings left with a girl to go to a shop for more alcohol.
That girl was “the on/off partner” of Pimm who took exception to the time they were away and asked someone for a lift so he could go and look for them.
In fact they had just turned back into Rockley Close when he saw them. He got out of the vehicle and asked her about where her coat had gone before telling Mr Jennings: “You think you’re bad, I’m going to put you down forever.”
He then kicked Mr Jennings in the chest area causing him to fall to the ground and strike his head. He managed to get up but then saw Pimm produce a knife which he thrust towards him.
Mr Batiste said Mr Jennings turned away but felt it going into his left buttock and fell to the floor. Pimm ran off and Mr Jennings made it back to the house where the party was being held and others helped him.
He was taken to hospital where he was found to have a puncture wound which had caused some damage to the sciatic nerve. He had to have surgery to repair it and spent three days in hospital.
The court was told he suffered some numbness in his leg as a result and a plan to start a painting and decorating business had gone on hold.
Adam Birkby for Pimm said: “This all stem from a stupid argument between two young men.”
Pimm, 19 of De Lacy Avenue, Almondbury, Huddersfield admitted unlawful wounding and was sentenced to 20 months in a young offender institution with four months consecutive for breaching the previously suspended sentence for possession with intent to supply.
