A man who launched a "vicious and unprovoked" attack on another man in his own home with a pair of craft knives has been jailed for five years.
Craig Anderson, 28, of Douglas, pleaded guilty to wounding with intent during the drunken assault in Onchan on 23 July while he was on bail.
The court heard Anderson had been drinking with a female friend, who claimed the victim had some of her clothes at his home.
The pair took a taxi to the property, entering through the back door, when Anderson shouted at the man "I am going to cut you up".
He swung the knives at the victim before running away from the scene with his friend.
The court heard the victim went to a police station that evening covered in blood, having suffered wounds that required stitches and left a scar on his neck.
Police arrested Anderson the next day at a property on Christian Road, where they found one of the knives and the victim's mobile phone.
Blood from Anderson's jacket was confirmed to be the victim's, with text messages on his phone stating "I went to his gaff and stabbed him".
He pleaded guilty to handling the stolen phone, and was also found to be in breach of a two-year suspended sentence for driving offences committed in September 2020.
Anderson was also sentenced for causing actual-bodily harm by breaking a man's nose in February, after he was found guilty by a jury.
