This is the eerie moment when an innocent man was stabbed in the face with a slashed razor – before his teenage assailant calmly left.
Horrific footage from Welsh nightclub One47 shows Alex Jones mutilating a victim in an unprovoked attack, leaving him with life-threatening injuries.
The 19-year-old has now been jailed for 10 years after a court heard that he was “in 10 out of 10” drunken violence.
He comes across 24-year-old Jake Pickstock at around 3 a.m. on the club’s CCTV in Landudno, as the victim sat alone in a booth.
Jones then leans down and shows Mr. Pickstock a blade.
The victim backs away, clearly shocked, and places his hands against Jones’ arms.
But without warning, Jones grabs Mr. Pickstock’s head and strikes him before walking away.
A court heard that Mr Pickstock may have died after severe cuts to the side of his throat, face and head.
Jones leaves the club and tries to throw the razor in a recycling bin.
However, he was spotted by nightclub security staff, who quickly moved in to apprehend him.
He declined to speak to police, but later admitted to causing serious bodily harm with intent.
Last week, Holywell’s defendant was jailed for 10 years and four months.
Prosecutor Rebecca Wright told Mold Crown Court that Jones had been drinking tequila, whiskey and lager and described herself as “10 out of 10 drunk”, daily post Report.
Judge Rhys Rowlands said the photos of the victim’s injuries were “the most horrifying” she had ever seen.
And he told the defendant that he would cause an “explosion of violence.”
“Your victim did nothing to deserve to be on the receiving end of this attack,” he said.
“It was his misfortune to appear before you that night.
“The weapon you chose to carry was terrifying and capable of inflicting some of the most horrific wounds.
“You were also caught on CCTV showing you the weapon a few moments before the attack.”
In a moving statement of victim impact, Mr Pickford said he had only one question for his assailant – “Why me?”
the victim told his local newspaper: “On that Friday, I would never have guessed that I was fighting for my life at a local club.
“Not knowing what really happened to me must have been the scariest moment of my life.
“It’s not something that can be easily overcome.”
