Foot-long knife is wielded at town pub
ACHEF wielded a footlong knife and then attacked a diner after customers complained about his food.
A court heard that Marco Sevilla, 37, had been drinking on duty as a chef in the Puss in Boots pub in Macclesfield and lost his temper. When manager Debbie Threlfall confronted him, Sevilla, who’d drunk eight bottles of beer, flew into a rage then picked up a kitchen knife and started waving it around close to her, demanding his wages.
He slammed the knife down, breaking it, before stumbling into the bar to continue his outburst in front of customers.
When one customer Wayne Lomas stepped in, he was attacked by Sevilla who pushed his face knocking him backwards. A judge at Chester Crown Court sentenced Sevilla, who was in prison for other offences, to another six months behind bars.
