The court also ordered forfeiture & destruction of the knife.
 
Investigating officer Detective Inspector Scott Harris said: "I hope this result demonstrates we will not tolerate violent crime within our communities, and those who commit these offences will be promptly investigated and brought before the courts.
 
 "As a result of the good work by patrol officers and subsequent detective work, those individuals committing violence have received custodial sentences which I hope will provide some comfort to the four victims of these very serious assaults.
 
"This was a very nasty series of assaults in a small period of time which involved the use of a knife. Thankfully these incidents are rare and I hope these sentences will act as a deterrent for anybody considering taking a knife out on to the streets.
 
 "We welcome today's result and hope it will enable the victims to feel some sense of closure after their ordeal."
