A Wellingborough man who stabbed someone who asked him to move out of the way in a nightclub is wanted on recall to prison.

Nathanial Soares, who is now aged 30, was jailed for four years in 2016 after the shocking incident at Kettering's Aqua club in October 2015.

Judge Adrienne Lucking deemed him to be such a risk to the public that she sentenced him to an extra year on licence upon his release.

But Soares, formerly of Ashfield Road, has now breached the conditions of his licence and is wanted on recall to prison.

In 2016 Northampton Crown Court heard a man walked into the nightclub toilets and saw Soares standing “motionless”.

Soares asked the man, who he did not know: "Do you think I’m a joke?"

The violent criminal, who admitted wounding, got a knife out of his bag and then held it to the victim’s throat.

It was held there for “30 to 40 seconds” before he then began hitting the man on the cheekbone with the handle of the knife.

Soares then turned and walked out of the toilets towards the bar.

His second victim, who was standing near the bar, was stabbed in the stomach after he asked Soares to move out of the way so he could get to his drink.

The victim felt a “scratch” and then looked down and saw blood was dripping on the floor. The wound was about one-and-a-half inches deep and required three stitches.

Anyone who sees Soares, or has information about his whereabouts, should call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
