A teenager stabbed a man in the neck during an attempted murder.
Matthew Owen, 19, knifed Ali Karimi, 23, twice in Drumchapel, Glasgow on July 13 2018.
Owen left the former barber scarred for life amid claims the victim stole his cousin’s phone earlier that day.
The teen faces a lengthy period behind bars after being convicted of attempted murder at the High Court in Glasgow.
Jurors heard Mr Karimi was attacked after an apparent row with Owen’s girlfriend.
Mr Karimi said he was struck on the face and neck – leaving him permanently scarred – before Owen fled.
In his closing speech to jurors, prosecutor Christopher Fyfe said: “The injury to Mr Karimi’s neck was potentially life threatening due to the proximity to an artery and nerves.
“Had he not received immediate medical treatment, his life could have been in danger due to blood loss and infection.”
Sentence was deferred until later this month for background reports by judge Tom Hughes who remanded Owen in custody meantime.
