A blind man has been left with life-changing injuries after being repeatedly stabbed in his Upper Holloway home.
Darren Harrison, 50, has lost all feeling in the right side of his body after the attack on the afternoon of January 26.
Terry Jobber, 42, of St John’s Way, Archway, has been charged with attempted murder. He appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on January 29 and has been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on February 26.
A friend of Darren’s told the Gazette he was “in a bad way” in hospital.
“The coppers say he will pull through,” he added. “I went to see him and his injuries are horrific. He’s paralysed down the side of his body.
“The first thing he said when he woke up was: ‘Where’s my dog?’. But the dog wasn’t hurt. A relation of his has it.”
