A bouncer was stabbed in the chest in the city centre last night.
A source told the ECHO the man “lost his nipple” when the blade sliced across his chest..
They added the victim had been discharged from hospital, but had been “so lucky” because “the blade had bent round and just missed his ribs.”
Insiders at Ruby Blue said the person responsible had been refused entry to the nightspot, but “returned three hours later with the weapon.”
A source said: “The door lads refused the entry to this rat… he became aggressive, verbal and physical and had to be pushed away from the door.
“The rat left… just to get back later.”
A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: “We were called at 11.30pm last night, Saturday 31 August, following reports of an altercation outside a bar on Great Charlotte Street in Liverpool city centre.
“During the altercation a male member of door staff suffered an injury to his chest consistent with a bladed weapon being used.
