A FORMER care home worker who launched a knife attack in a pub, during which three people were injured, has been jailed for five years.
Scott Wilson, 31, of Heysham Road, Heysham, was “extremely drunk” when he approached Darren Malkin in the Bradford Arms in Lines Street, Morecambe on Mothers’ Day last year.
Preston Crown Court heard Wilson asked Mr Malkin “Do you know who I am?”, before punching him in the face.
Wilson was on top of Malkin on the floor when Mr Malkin noticed Wilson had a craft knife clenched in his fist.
Mr Malkin managed to push his attacker off but noticed his right forearm was bleeding.
During the struggle he had received a knife wound to his arm, which was treated firstly at Lancaster Royal Infirmary and later at Royal Preston Hospital’s plastic surgery department.
Another man, Karl Jackson, who saw the struggle, stepped in to try and break the men up.
His girlfriend, Tracey McCauley, tried to pull him away when she saw a flash of silver and saw the blade.
She also received a cut to her hand.
