Party stabber gets court date

A MAN who stabbed his girlfriend at a family party has pleaded guilty.

David Bray, 46, pleaded guilty to one charge of unlawful wounding at Bradford Crown Court.

In April, the Courier reported how mum-of-five Claire Siddle was left with a gash to her arm after being attacked by Bray.

She had been at her father’s house on Denfield Crescent, Ovenden, for a party when the attack happened.

Miss Siddle had a cut to her left arm that was so deep it reached the bone.

It was alleged at the time that Bray, also of Denfield Crescent, had chased residents with the knife.

Miss Siddle’s father, Billy Sayle, told the Courier that it was “like something from a Scream movie.”

Police were called to the scene and had to use a Taser on Bray after he ran towards them with the blade raised above his head.

He was arrested and taken into custody.

Bray had pleaded not guilty to a charge of wounding with intent, at an earlier hearing, and was due to face trial at Bradford Crown Court.

However, on Tuesday as the trial was due to get underway he changed his plea to guilty.

Bray will appear at Bradford Crown Court on September 15 for sentencing.
