A man involved in a brawl that saw a club worker stabbed has been locked up for eight months.
The victim had a stomach wound and another worker was butted and punched outside Oceana, Bilston Street, Wolverhampton.
Miss Elizabeth Power, prosecuting, told Wolverhampton Crown Court that Kalon Maitland was in a group of three men and three women, who demanded to know where the two staff were from.
A fight broke out and one was stabbed on December 17, 2011.
Miss Power said the gang ran and Maitland, aged 20, was seen banging fists on the window of the Mediterranean takeaway, in Market Street, causing it to shatter.
As he ran away he discarded something and officers recovered a knife, said Miss Power. When arrested Maitland, of Hilton Road, Lanesfield, said the altercation followed his cousin being assaulted by a group.
He admitted affray, possession of a blade and criminal damage, on the basis that he did not produce the knife in the altercation or cause the stabbed man’s injuries.
Mr Christopher O’Gorman, defending, said he had stayed out of trouble throughout 2012 and asked for “one final opportunity”.
Judge John Wait said only custody could be imposed, and sent him to a young offenders institute for eight months.
