A thug who plunged a zombie knife so deep into the buttocks of his friend's love rival that it had to be surgically removed has been jailed for nearly 12 years. 

Aaron Toward-Parker, 19, stabbed the unnamed victim in a horrific attack during a showdown in a park in Swindon, Wiltshire on January 20 this year.   

Toward-Parker's friend, Jack Parfitt, had arranged to meet the love rival, who was a colleague of his pregnant girlfriend, after becoming upset at flirting between the pair.

The incident then escalated and Toward-Parker savagely stabbed his victim, leaving him with serious injuries.

He was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at Swindon Crown Court in August despite denying the charge.

He had previously admitted having an offensive weapon and threatening another with an offensive weapon, and was sentenced to for 11 years and eight months at the same court on Thursday.  

After shooting his target, Parfitt told Toward-Parker to 'back out the shank' - an instruction to his friend to get out his knife, the court heard. Toward-Parker then told the love rival's friend: 'Don't think I won't bore you out with the knife' before plunging it into his buttocks
