Chinese national jailed for stabbing Garda

A CHINESE member of "a gang of bandits" has been jailed for eight years for stabbing a garda during an armed robbery at a suburban house.

Zheng Xu (31), of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to seriously wounding Garda David Comer on July 13, 2005.

Xu and three other masked raiders held the occupants of a house in Main Street, Raheny, Dublin, at knifepoint, demanding their mobile phones and bank card PIN numbers.

Two co-accused, Xiang Cheng (25) and Qian Cheng, aka Jian Gong Ten (28), had been each jailed for seven years in July for assaulting Gda James Hendrick, aggravated burglary and the false imprisonment of three other Chinese people the same night.
