Man, 49, admits attacking pub punter with axe

A punter pleaded guilty to attacking a man with an axe and knife in an alcohol-fuelled attack inside a pub opposite his Windsor home.

Bearded Robert Halligan wearing a grey tracksuit admitted three charges at Reading Crown Court on Friday including unlawfully wounding Decimus McNulty with an axe on April 27.

Halligan, of Clewer Hill Road, also pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of dangerous weapons in the attack at The Sebastopol pub in Clewer Hill Road.

The court heard how the 49-year-old had been drinking in the pub, but was kicked out after turning up with an axe before returning to attack McNulty.

It also heard how Halligan had a previous conviction, personality disorder and a history of taking anti-psychotic drugs.

He has been remanded in custody in Bullingdon Prison and will be sentenced at the same court on July 27.
