Charlie Earey attacked the 19-year-old after chasing him through the streets in September 2018.
Earey arrived in a car in Handel Crescent, where he saw the victim with friends, before getting out and chasing him to nearby Melba Gardens.
In an attack that lasted for 10 minutes, Earey, 32, punched and stabbed the teenager repeatedly, in what police say appeared to be an unprovoked attack.
Police launched a public appeal to find Earey, of Leicester Gardens, Tilbury, and he was arrested in January.
Appearing at Basildon Crown Court in February, he admitted wounding with intent. He was sentenced there today to 10 years in prison.
Detective Inspector David Browning, of Grays CID, said: “The sentence reflects the seriousness of this violent assault – which Earey committed while intoxicated – and he now has plenty of time to reflect on his behaviour.
“We remain committed to tackling knife crime and violence and I ask anyone who knows someone who carries a knife to not be afraid to tell us or Crimestoppers.
“The more we can do together as a community to prevent knife crime happening in the first place, the less people there will be whose lives are changed by it.”Tags: Thurrock, Tilbury
