A 31-year-old man has pleaded guilty to stabbing two people outside a pub in Doddington Road, Wellingborough.
Following an altercation inside the pub on the evening of February 19, 2022, Lewis Gladstone Jackson, of Westbrook, Wellingborough, stabbed a man in his 50s.
He then turned the weapon on a woman in her 30s, stabbing her once to the arm.
Both victims were taken to hospital but thankfully did not suffer life-threatening or life-changing injuries.
Gladstone was arrested after fleeing the scene and subsequently charged with one count of Section 18 GBH, one count of Section 20 GBH, and one count of possession of an offensive weapon.
At Northampton Crown Court this month (August 22) he pleaded guilty to the offences, was remanded into custody, and will be sentenced at the same court on September 26, 2022.
Lead Investigator, DC Chris Mann, said: “This was a really shocking incident for everyone involved as most people go out to enjoy a drink safely and then go home without incident.
“Gladstone showed no regard for life when he stabbed these two people and his actions could have had fatal consequences.
“Tackling serious violence is a priority for Northamptonshire Police and I hope this case demonstrates our commitment in bringing offenders to justice.”
