Stephen Dalzell, born 11/01/65, of Old Wolverton Road, Wolverton, Milton Keynes, plead guilty to Section 18 GBH at Luton Crown court yesterday (23 February 2011).
He will be sentenced on 13th May 2011 following the completion of reports.
On 6 September 2010 Police were called after a 41 year old man was found and taken to hospital by a passing motorist in Hockliffe Road at approximately 7am that morning.
The victim was on his way to a local garage to have a tyre fixed but had stopped when the tyre went flat. He was then attacked by the offender from behind. The victim suffered a serious wound to the neck, although his windpipe was not cut. After a scuffle the offender ran off. The victim has since recovered but is left with physical scars of the attack.
Stephen Dalzell was arrested and charged the following day (7 September 2010).
Detective Inspector Jerome Kent of the Herts and Beds Major Crime Unit, said: “This was a serious and brutal attack which could have easily killed the victim. We are pleased that the attacker has accepted his responsibility for the attack. We would also like to thank the member of the public who helped the victim and took him to hospital. This action ultimately saved his life.”
