Meeting over debt ended in stabbing
An early morning meeting to settle a debt ended in bloodshed when a man was stabbed three times on the leg.
Liam Munro was attacked by his former boss, 42-year-old Keith Robertson, as he sat in a car, accompanied by two of his friends.
Robertson of Towerhill Drive, Inverness, had gone to the meeting armed with two knives and used one of them to stab Mr Munro. He leaned over the front seat towards Mr Munro who was in the back seat, and struck him on the leg. The wounds were not serious but required hospital treatment.
Robertson appeared for sentence at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday after pleading guilty to a charge of assault to injury by stabbing in Dalmore Place, Culloden on August 6 last year. He was jailed for 21 months.
