A man who chased down a cyclist and tried to slash him with a knife has been sentenced to jail.
Shocking footage of the attack shows 22-year-old Cecil Samba attacking an unidentified cyclist, who only escapes by throwing his bike at his assailant.
In the footage, Samba can be seen sprinting after the cyclist with a knife in his hand in a daylight attack in Leicester.
The cyclist throws his bike at Samba and the pair tussle in the street before the cyclist flees on foot. Samba then runs in the opposite direction, leaving the bike lying in the middle of the road.
Samba, who had travelled from London to visit his student girlfriend, was sentenced to four years imprisonment for grievous bodily harm with intent at Leicester Crown Court on Friday. He also received six months imprisonment for possession of a bladed article. The sentences are to run concurrently.
