Knife attacker admits having blade while on parole

A man who was jailed over an attack which left the victim requiring surgery to his penis is facing extra time 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 in 2014.

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

After admitting the charge as Glasgow Sheriff Court, Malavin, 20, was told he faces a consecutive custodial sentence.

The court heard that Malavin admitted possessing a knife following a dispute with a neighbour on 21 August 2015.

Sheriff Bill Totten told him: "The charge to which you pled guilty is a serious one, a consecutive custodial sentence is likely to be imposed."

Knife and axe

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

Souley and Malavin, who were not invited, 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.
