A man bleeding from a huge wound in the chest approached a police officer in King’s Cross Road and said: “Could I speak to you for a minute?”
Clerkenwell Magistrates’ Court heard Jack Scott and Edward Noble, his 58-year-old alleged aggressor, were walking together. When Mr Scott approached the cop, Noble said: “I don’t want to talk to him. He is only an ordinary copper. Let’s go and see his guv’nor.”
Mr Scott then said: “We have had a bit of an argument and my chest is bleeding.”
The officer, Pc Lewis, told the court: “The injured man told me: ‘This must have happened when we were fighting.’”
Noble, of St James’s Walk, Clerkenwell, was remanded in custody.
