Man jailed for his involvement in double stabbing at Northfield night club

Bromsgrove Editorial 7th Aug, 2022   0

A MAN has been sentenced to 12 years for his involvement in a double stabbing in a Northfield night club.

Cory Dixon, aged 33, of Hayley Green Road in Bartley Green, was sentenced to nine years behind bars and three more years on licence after two men were stabbed and a third received a serious head injury.

Police were called to Medleys nightclub on Bristol Road South on March 9, 2019, following reports of a disorder involving a number of people.

CCTV footage from the venue showed Dixon holding a knife before one of his victims fell to the floor and the second was stabbed during the melee.




Three men were taken to hospital for treatment before being discharged.

Police issued a social media appeal to trace Dixon and an accomplice in October and they were later charged in connection with the incident.


Dixon was charged with possession of a knife in a public place, violent disorder and two counts of wounding with intent.

He appeared at Birmingham Crown Court and was sentenced to spend nine years in prison before being released on licence for three years.

He was also ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge fee.

DC Darren Lennox, from West Midlands Police CID, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to put Dixon behind bars and prevent anyone else from being attacked in such a violent way.

“I hope this sentence shows how seriously we take violent crimes and sends a strong message that this behaviour will not be tolerated.”

A second man, 36-year-old Ashley Holder of Cheverton Road in Northfield, received a community order and three other people are due to appear at court at a later date.
