A Black Country woman who stabbed a university student twice in the back while carrying out a sex act on him has been jailed.
Emily Goode, 28, Brierley Hill, met the victim at a Stourbridge pub.
The student managed to escape from her house by clambering over a shed. Goode was also charged with injuring a police officer in May.
She admitted two counts of wounding and was given a 27-month prison sentence at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
Defence barrister Simon Rippon told the court Goode's life at the time of the offence in October last year had descended into one of heavy drinking and drug taking which he suggested had been symptoms of an underlying psychiatric problem.
"Very plainly, she wasn't thinking straight," he said.
Judge John Warner told Goode: "There came a time when you stabbed this man twice in the back - that's obviously a very serious thing to do.
"Sometimes that sort of act can cause immense injury."
Goode was also sentenced for attacking a police officer with a shard of pottery at Trefoil Gardens, Stourbridge, in May.
