Old boys’ drunken brawl ends in vi­o­lence

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MAN was stabbed through the PE­NIS af­ter a triv­ial al­ter­ca­tion in a pub turned to vi­o­lence, a court has heard.

The sav­age knife wound went through his man­hood into his groin, just miss­ing his femoral artery.

As 64-year-old vic­tim Ter­ence Flood was tended by paramedics he was ter­ri­fied to hear them say “it’s a bad one” and that he would not sur­vive if they took him to the hos­pi­tal orig­i­nally planned.

In­stead he was rushed to a nearby hos­pi­tal where he was treated for the ag­o­nis­ing wounds, which also in­cluded cuts to his left hand.

Liver­pool Crown Court heard that the in­ci­dent hap­pened on July 14 last year while Mr Flood and his at­tacker, Alex Walker, 71, were in The Pound Pub in Ather­ton, Lancs.

Mr Flood men­tioned to Walker he had heard ru­mours that he owed some­one £60 which an­gered Walker who in­vited him out­side.

Mr Flood said he did not want to fall out with him and had just been try­ing to do him a favour.

But Walker ( above) in­sisted so he went, ex­pect­ing to con­tinue the ver­bal ar­gu­ment.

A scuf­fle oc­curred dur­ing which Walker lunged at Mr Flood. He did not know what had hap­pened, but some­one shouted ‘ oh my God!’ and he be­came aware of blood.”

Mr Flood said the pain was “in­de­scrib­able”, the swelling has only just sub­sided and he is con­cerned about his abil­ity to get an erec­tion.

When ques­tioned Walker, a for­mer joiner, said he had drunk 10 pints of beer.

He ad­mit­ted wound­ing Mr Flood with in­tent and pos­sess­ing a lock knife.

He was jailed for six years.
