It happened last September at Wellington Park.

Canavan suffered a cut to his face, while his victim needed hospital treatment.

Wellington Park Estate.

Police found several knives at the scene, and later discovered threatening messages on Canavan's phone to his victim about a debt.

He was arrested and appeared in court in November 2023, where he pleaded guilty to grave and criminal assault and possessing an offensive weapon.

Detective Sergeant Jim McGranahan says he hopes the sentence sends a strong message to people thinking about using knives as a weapon.

"Canavan carried out a deliberate and nasty assault and behaviour like this cannot be tolerated.

We will do everything in our power to see offenders such as this face justice."
