Knife attacker given more jail time for having blade on parole

A man who was jailed over an attack which left the victim needing surgery to his penis will have to spend longer in jail for possessing a knife on bail.

Zico Malavin was jailed for two-and-a-half years for attacking Robert Eadie at his home on Christmas Day 2014.

While on bail for that offence, Malavin took a knife from his Drumchapel home and got in a car with friends.

After admitting the charge, Malavin, 20, had an additional 12 months added to his existing sentence.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Sheriff Bill Totten also told Malavin that he would be supervised for six months after his release.

Custody 'inevitable'

He said: "It is clear that a custodial sentence, as has been recognised, is inevitable in this case."

Earlier this year, Malavin and Steven Souley, 26, were jailed after they admitted attacking Mr Eadie at his home on 25 December 2014.

Souley and Malavin, who were not invited, had turned up at about midnight.

Souley was armed with an axe and Malavin had a knife.

Mr Eadie's sister, who knew the pair, demanded that they leave. Her brother was attacked after he tried to make them leave the flat.

Souley was also jailed for seven years for the culpable homicide of Andrew Curran in 2010 but was deemed safe enough to be freed in May 2014.

Malavin's brothers Angus and Zak were jailed for 18 years and 17 years in 2011 years for Mr Curran's murder.

A fourth Malavin brother, Kris, was jailed for seven years in 2014 after he tried to run down and kill a key witness in the murder trial.
