A "pimp" has been jailed for three years for coming "within an ace" of stabbing a prostitute's punter to death. Aiden Dinsdale, 23, "plunged" a knife into the man's chest after he got into an argument with a Hessle Road prostitute he claimed had stolen from him. The blade penetrated his heart.
Dinsdale, of Gleneagles Park, east Hull, claimed he drew the knife to scare the man, and stabbed him by accident during a scuffle. But a jury of eight women and four men took just 31 minutes to find him guilty of unlawful wounding after a three-day trial at Hull Crown Court. He was cleared of a more serious charge of wounding with intent.
Jailing Dinsdale for three years, Recorder Christopher Knox told him: "You were within an ace of killing this man. To use a knife and to physically plunge it ten centimetres into a man's chest is massively wicked."
The victim, who is originally from Russia, thought he had been punched, but realised as he chased Dinsdale "something is wrong with me", and collapsed in the street. The blade penetrated the right ventricle of his heart. After being taken to Hull Royal Infirmary, where he had a drain placed in his chest, he spent a month at Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham. The victim told the trial when he looked down at his chest he "saw everything coming out"
He was walking with three friends down Hessle Road, west Hull, when they were approached by the prostitute just before 2am on December 18. The woman "offered her services", and after agreeing a price of £20, the pair went down Rosamond Street. He claimed she then stole another £45 from his pocket.
