Wolffe found guilty of stabbing bartender

A 20-year-old man was convicted last night of stabbing a restaurant worker 13 times in an attempted robbery.

A jury found Alex Wolffe guilty of wounding, attempted robbery and two counts of intimidation.

Borislav Angelov was stabbed outside his Paget home after he was chased on his motorcycle along Harbour Road by two men on a bike in the early hours of October 23 last year.

They pursued the bartender into the yard of his Paget home and attacked him. He was stabbed as he fought back against one of the attackers.

Mr Angelov sustained serious injuries, including a collapsed lung, and spent ten days in hospital.

But he was able to spot the licence plate number of the bike ridden by his attackers.

Wolffe, from Southampton, earlier testified that he was at home watching television and listening to music with friends on the night Mr Angelov was stabbed.

He also claimed that he had been robbed by two men — one armed with a knife — on the same night.

The trial was delayed after Wolffe was stabbed in the shoulder earlier this month.

The jury deliberated for almost three hours before it reached a verdict.

Wolffe was found guilty on each count by a majority verdict of nine out of 12 jurors.

Wolffe was remanded in custody by Puisne Judge Juan Wolffe and a date will be set for his sentencing at the next arraignments session.

Defence lawyer Susan Mulligan told the court that her client planned to appeal.
