A Sheffield gangster who stabbed a man 100 times with a bladed knuckleduster attacked his victim because he wanted his cash, it has been revealed.

Byron Naylor ‘tortured’ his 57-year-old victim by beating and stabbing him in a ‘vicious, evil act of violence’.

South Yorkshire Police revealed details of the attack last week after Naylor was jailed for 20 years for causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He also received a 13 month sentence for possessing an offensive weapon.

Today, the force revealed that the motive for the attack was ‘financial gain’.

It has emerged that when Naylor was homeless last summer, a man – who went on to become his victim – offered him a place to stay.

Naylor left the property when he moved back into his family home, but during the time spent living with his victim he learned that the man was ‘due to come into a large amount of money’.

Detectives believe the motive for the attack was ‘financial gain’.

Naylor, 29, of Glenholme Road, Woodhouse, stabbed his victim more than 100 times in an attack which lasted a number of hours on October 18, last year.

His victim suffered 19 broken ribs, broken fingers, a broken elbow and a fractured eye socket as well as extensive bruising and swelling after he was punched, kicked and stamped on.

He continues to receive hospital treatment more than seven months on.

South Yorkshire Police said Naylor used to be a ‘prominent figure in Sheffield’s organised crime group scene’.

Byron Naylor, aged 29, attacked the man in his own home, beating and stabbing the victim repeatedly with a bladed knuckleduster and leaving him with over 100 stab wounds.

Naylor, formerly of Glenholme Road, Woodhouse was sentenced to 20 years yesterday, June 7, for grievous bodily harm with intent.

He also received a 13-month sentence for possession of an offensive weapon and will remain on Life Licence.

On the evening of October 18 last year, Naylor entered the home of his 57-year-old victim uninvited and carried out the unprovoked attack.

The victim suffered 19 broken ribs, broken fingers, a broken elbow, a fractured left eye socket, extensive bruising and swelling and countless puncture and stab wounds to his entire body.

He continues to receive hospital treatment more than seven months on.

Naylor was previously a prominent figure in Sheffield’s organised crime group scene.

Detective Constable James Hughes, who led the investigation, said: “This incident was a vicious, evil act of violence.

“The victim was essentially tortured in his own home for a number of hours, in which time he was punched, kicked, stamped on and stabbed over 100 times.

“His injuries speak for the brutality Naylor mercilessly inflicted on him.

“I would like to commend the victim’s bravery in coming forward and giving evidence. Without his support, this prosecution would not have been possible.

“The victim, his family and the public can now rest assured that Naylor has been brought to justice and is now behind bars.

“I thoroughly welcome this verdict.”
