Man jailed for participating in double stabbing at Birmingham nightclub

A man has been jailed for his involvement in a Birmingham nightclub double stabbing in 2019. Cory Dixon, 33, of Hayley Green Road in Bartley Green, was sentenced to 12 years after two men were stabbed and a third received a serious head wound.

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

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

Three men were taken to hospital for treatment before being released. Police made a social media appeal to find 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 intentional injury.

He appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday July 29 and was sentenced to nine years in prison before being released on license for three years. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £170.

What did West Midlands Police say?

DC Darren Lennox of Force CID said: “I’m glad we were able to put Dixon behind bars and prevent anyone from being attacked in such a violent way. “I hope this sentence shows how seriously we take violent crime and sends a strong message that this behavior will not be tolerated.” A second man, Ashley Holder, 36, of Cheverton Road in Northfield, has received a community order and three other people are due in court at a later date.
