A Poplar man has been convicted for slashing his victim with a carpet knife, narrowly missing his jugular vein.
Jeremy Muda, 31, of Chrisp Street, attacked the 29-year-old man as he stepped out of a lift.
Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how the knife attack took place following a dispute on the Isle of Dogs the morning of Monday, October 30.
The victim threatened to kill a woman just after 8.40am outside an address in Alice Shepherd House, before breaking her window and leaving using the lift.
Muda, who was waited for him, launched into the vicious assault, hacking away at his neck, face and upper arm.
