Let me take you back to 2016, 2am on November the 16th to be exact. I was sitting in the flat kitchen at university with my friend - we were eating some protein oats whilst watching YouTube vids (gettin’ them early morning gains💪🏼). One of our flat mates came into the kitchen and joined us.
We were all talking & having the usual banter that we had.
He was telling us how he just downed 10 pints in 2 minutes (he liked to lie A LOT). We were all laughing having the ‘bants’, I then put something like this on the flat’s Facebook group page (we did stuff like this often) ‘’come to our flat ******** is drinking 10 pints in 2 minutes’’. He was laughing at it, then fiercely asked me to remove it telling me how people are going to make him do it when they see him, I said no probs gimme a sec & began to take it down.
At this point he had walked to his cupboard & reached into his cutlery pot where he pulled out a kitchen knife, he turned and threw it at me from about 15m away (I was slouched in the corner of the kitchen on the seats around the wall)... It bounced off the wall about 1m to the left of me, scary as it was at heart height and on my left side... He darted over towards where it landed then he rapidly picked it up. Came to me then pressed one hand on my shoulder and the knife over me. I stared into his eyes knowing I had to do something fast or I could be getting seriously hurt. He turned and looked at my friend. In the split second he turned to look at my friend I darted out of my seat with my left hand towards his wrist, I made contact and put his body over the table in front of us and squeezed his hand against the table so hard that his hand clasped open.
It all happened so damn fast.
I went to so many meetings at university, writing so many accounts of what happened, even with an eye witness & guess what? He didn’t get kicked out of university and he didn’t get removed from student accommodation. In fact his only punishment was moving to a different block. And the police?? The police said they can start an account on this & would contact me, they never did. END OF STORY IN COMMENT SECTION...!
