Bottle attacker convicted of stabbing Upper Clapton rapper Professor Green
A thug has been found guilty of stabbing MOBO-award winning Hackney rapper Professor Green in the neck with a broken bottle at Cargo nightclub in Shoreditch.
Anthony Lloyd Sue-Patt Jones, 25, Ashdale House on the Woodbury Down Estate, was convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent at Snaresbrook Crown Court today (Friday) after attacking the artist, whose real name is Stephen Manderson.
Jones left Mr Manderson, who grew up on the Northwold estate in Upper Clapton, drenched in blood when he struck inside the Rivington Street nightclub in May last year because he believed the star was “jostling” his friend.
Mr Manderson, 26, fled the nightspot with a 15-centimetre gash in his neck.
Medics used special stitches to close the huge wound to Mr Manderson’s neck after the glass sliced almost to the bone.
