Richard Emblow, 46, admits stabbing Scott Hacking three times while he lay in a Shipley street, but denies attempted murder

A MAN stabbed a “junkie” to “teach him a lesson” for taking money from his former partner to buy drugs and alcohol, a jury has heard.
Richard Emblow, 46, said he “snapped” and confronted Scott Hacking after trying to talk to him about the way he was treating Catherine Hogan.
Mr Hacking was repeatedly stabbed after being struck by a car on Kirkgate, Shipley, on the afternoon of July 23 last year.
Emblow told Bradford Crown Court yesterday that while he had stabbed him three times in the leg, he had never intended to kill him.


He has admitted wounding Mr Hackett with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm, but denies a charge of attempted murder.
Emblow said he and Miss Hogan had known each other for 15 years and were “like a married couple”, telling the jury he “loved her to bits.”
By July last year, he said she had moved out their shared address and been taken into a secure nursing home suffering from manic depression and schizophrenia.
Emblow said Mr Hacking was taking money from the “vulnerable” Miss Hogan to buy himself heroin, cocaine, and alcohol.
“It was easy pickings for him, he was a drug addict,” he said.
“I didn’t know what to do about the situation, no-one wanted to help me.”
On July 23, Emblow walked into Shipley from his home in Bradford Road, Bingley, to collect prescription medication from Boots.
He said he then walked over to a grassed area near the town’s Baptist church where Mr Hacking was with his friend Jason Parkinson.
Emblow said he tried to talk about the situation with Miss Hogan, also a drug addict, while Mr Hacking was injecting heroin into his leg.
