Man admits stabbing bouncer in the chest outside Ruby Blues bar

A man has today admitted stabbing a bouncer in the chest in Liverpool city centre when armed with three knives.

Patrick Wilson, 60, pleaded guilty to wounding doorman Mark Brady with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm.

But he denied the attempted murder of his victim outside Ruby Blues in Great Charlotte Street on Friday, August 31 this year.

Mr Brady is said to have had his nipple cut by the blade during the attack, which happened at around 11.30pm.

Merseyside Police said officers were called to reports of an altercation outside the venue and launched an investigation into the stabbing.

They said a male member of door staff was taken to hospital after suffering an injury to his chest “consistent with a bladed weapon being used”.

Wilson, of Green Street, Vauxhall, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and three counts of possession of an offensive weapon.

He appeared at Liverpool Crown Court this morning, via video link from HMP Liverpool, for a short plea and trial preparation hearing.

Wilson, with short brown hair and wearing a light blue sweatshirt, spoke only to confirm his personal details and to enter his pleas.

He denied attempted murder but admitted wounding with intent and three counts of possessing an offensive weapon, namely three kitchen knives.

Trevor Parry-Jones, prosecuting, said the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would now consider whether those pleas were acceptable.

Judge Denis Watson, QC, said the CPS must inform Wilson’s lawyers whether they intend to pursue the attempted murder charge by November 12.

He set a trial, estimated to last three days, for the week commencing February 11 next year and remanded Wilson in custody.
