a very forgiving man
Maybe it was an accident.
If that was the case, whey did he have to stagger out in to the street and rely on a stranger to raise the alarm? Why didn’t she just call an ambulance?

this man got stabbed by his wife, and he dont want the police to press charges, comments pleas:)Posted 6 years agonedrapierSubscriber
What’s that film with Kevin Kline as a man who shags around barely behind his wife’s back, and she tries to poison then shoot him?
The sleeping pills slow his metabolism, allowing the blood to clot and stop him bleeding to death from the gunshot wound. He wakes up, realises how much she must love him if she cared enough to try to kill him, refuses to report to the police and swears to never stray again.
True story apparently. Sorry if you had it lined up to watch tonight.Posted 6 years agoSurrounded By ZulusMember
“A husband is pleading with police not to press murder charges against his wife after she allegedly threw a kitchen knife which stabbed him through the stomach, nearly killing him.”
I think he’d be much more successful if he begged them to press murder charges. Think of the compo they’d get for that.

you lot are so sheltered..
if he doesn’t want to press charges the police will very likely have a hard time prosecuting the case..
I imagine he doesn’t want to press charges as he fully believes that he drove her to act the way that she did.. that he is to blame
classic domestic abuse..

Running around hysterically and being bloody useless I’d imagine*
*Your experience of women and blood may vary.
No I’ve noticed that too……in A&E departments female nurses are always running around hysterically and being bloody useless at the first sight of blood, whilst male nurses calmly deal with the situation.Posted 6 years ago

Yunki, people aren’t sheltered new CPS guidelines encourage prosecutions with the victims consent for cases of FB (domestic violence) as long as there is corroborating evidence, injuries, witnesses, what did she say or do upon police arrival. If it was an accident why didn’t she give first aid, call an ambulance? Attempt murder is hardest to prove you must prove intent to kill them. Murder is intent to kill OR cause GBH. Attempt murders are hard. They could force the victim to give evidence but then he still doesn’t have to say anything. I bet this will be a GBH with intent charge you will not get an attempt murder charge. Interesting case IMO.Posted 6 years ago
no one can be made to give evidence against there wife or husband unless they want to
Not true (in this case at least). People can be compelled to testify against their own spouses when e.g. they are a victim of violent crime committed by the spouse.
it sounds like she threw a household item at him rather than intended to murder him
I’m confused. it’s a remarkable “throw” of a kitchen knife that ends up not just cutting someone but actually jammed inside them. or was that your point? i’m not sure.Posted 6 years agosupertrampMember
this happened to my first wife’s father, her alcoholic mother stabbed him. His quick reflexes saved him, he managed to put his arm in front of the blade, a brand new large kitchen knife aimed for his chest. In the end he had lots of stiches in his arm and the tip of the blade snapped off in his breast bone. This was mid 1980’s she was taken to a mental health hospital, but unless he pressed charges they would not section her and keep her in for treatment – he refused to press chargess! they divorced about a year later.
so yes it does happenPosted 6 years ago
Yup Crankboy I didn’t read my post after I wrote it on my crappy small phone with predictive text so I mean WITHOUT victim’s consent .. and yup I was right … as Crankboy said (I just couldn’t be bothered) he could be made to give evidence, sit in silence the done for contempt, highly unlikely though. as long as CPS has other corroborating evidence they will more than likely run a prosecution without husband’s consent and they won’t force him to court.
