Man jailed for stabbing outside pub
A VIOLENT thug who stabbed a man twice in the back after a row in a pub has been jailed for 27 months.
Micky Aldwinckle, 35, carried out the frenzied attack and then ran away shouting “I hope he dies”.
He had pulled 47-year-old John Sergeant off his bicycle, plunged a seven-inch knife into his back twice, and then kicked him in the head before leaving him unconscious in the middle of the road.
The violence erupted after the two men had argued inside the Anchor pub, in Civic Square, Tilbury, on the evening of November 8, last year. Aldwinckle said Mr Sergeant had been saying inappropriate things about his mother, Basildon Crown Court heard.
