A man stumbled out of a pub with a woman just to have a good time. But little did he know that he'll be running for his life with a knife wound on his back.
The unnamed couple from Hull, East Riding, met at The Albert Hotel while socialising with friends. When things got more intimate between them, the pair decided to go somewhere else a bit more private.
The defending lawyer, Paul Genney, said that they “were desperate to find somewhere together, to be together, presumably with the act of sexual intercourse in mind.” The girl had allegedly told the man to take him to her parents' place, the Mirror reported.
But when they were not allowed inside, she decided to take her lover to her ex-boyfriend's place, saying that he would not be present.
However, the ex, Jae McManus, was home. But this didn't deter the woman. The girl began knocking on this defendant’s front door and shouting his name. When asked what she wanted, the woman told her ex that she had come with her new man.
When McManus, 26, opened the door the man saw he was holding a kitchen knife with a five-inch blade, reported the Mirror. The man realised that he was in grave danger and had started to back off.
McManus told him to 'f*** off,' but as he ran down the steps he said he felt a prod to his back.
It was only after he had run a considerable distance did he realise that he had been stabbed on the back with the knife. A passerby helped him get to Hull Royal Infirmary where he had three stitches.
Jae was arrested at four in the morning. pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis but denied wounding with intent. McManus did admit wounding, which prosecutors accepted. He was sentenced by the judge to 15 months and six weeks in jail. The judge did sympathise with him saying that he had the right to be incensed but not to attack the other man.
