Thug who sliced taxi driver's ear in half jailed for 32 months 

A thug who sliced a taxi driver's ear in half has been sentenced to 32 months in prison, with his accomplice jailed for 10 months.

The two men attacked taxi driver Sajid Javed over a £20 fare, leaving him permanently disfigured.

Javed, 36, suffered stab and slash wounds to his head and body, including a badly severed ear during the attack which took place yards from his home in Govan, Glasgow and received emergency treatment at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

The driver was stabbed by Gordon McPherson, 21, and repeatedly punched by Dylan Sullivan, 20.

Both men were sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court. McPherson was locked up for 32 months after admitting assaulting the dad-of-three causing his severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Sullivan was ordered to serve 10 months following his guilty plea to assaulting Mr Javed. Both struck having previously been freed early from earlier stints behind bars.
