A man has appeared in court after a stabbing attack which left his victim with a wound down to the bone.
Lee Wilson was thrown out of the Abbott bar on Provost Watt Drive in Kincorth on April 1 for threatening another customer.
The self-employed father-of-three was asked to leave after telling a customer he would “take him outside”.
About 20 minutes later the 28-year-old was involved in an altercation at a nearby cash machine.
But when another man tried to punch him, Wilson retaliated by stabbing him in the arm – leaving a four-inch wound which had to be stitched up in hospital.
After the attack, Wilson approached a nearby car and began kicking and punching its headlights.
He appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday to admit the assault and acting in a threatening and abusive manner.
Fiscal depute Katy Begg said: “He used a knife and the victim was left bleeding heavily.
“The man had a wound on his left arm, injuring the muscle down to the bone.”
Wilson, whose address was given in court papers as HMP Perth, will be sentenced next month.
His solicitor John McLoone asked for bail – saying his client would likely lose his new council house otherwise.
He added that Wilson spends the “best part” of each week looking after his three children who are four, two and seven months.
But Sheriff Morag McLaughlin said: “I have heard what Mr McLoone has said but I am not going to admit you to bail because this charge is so serious and because you committed it while on bail.”
