A judge said it was 'inexplicable' that Quinn, who is originally from Dublin, would commit such a serious offence having committed no convictions previously. He was sentenced to five-and-a-half years having admitted attempted robbery; and possessing cannabis. Manchester Crown Court heard the victim spent the night at the city centre nightspots with colleagues after leaving work on December 5, 2019. He was going home but decided to have one last drink, prosecutor Peter Warne said. He went to a bar near the Arndale, but couldn't remember the name of the venue. There he met Quinn and his friend, who he had not met before. He invited the pair back to his home for a drink, telling them he only lived around the corner.

He and his girlfriend then barricaded themselves in the bathroom and called the police, and officers arrived 'very quickly'. The victim suffered 'minor injuries' to his mouth, but was left psychologically scarred. In a statement, he said he has moved house and had to find accommodation with a concierge and cameras for his peace of mind. Telling how he feels 'grateful to be alive', he said: "If the police hadn't come in when they did, knowing they were considering sticking the knife in me, I could have lost my life." Quinn's barrister said the incident was 'totally out of character'. Michael Goldwater said Quinn, of Holme Avenue, Bury, was born and brought up in Dublin before moving to the UK aged 17, and found work with a gardening business in Manchester. Saying Quinn had drank a 'considerable amount of alcohol', Mr Goldwater added: "The truth is, he got carried away and behaved in an appalling way." Sentencing, Judge Nicholas Dean QC said Quinn's actions were 'close to inexplicable'. "What you did was, as you now I think understand, very serious indeed," the judge said. "I do not believe for one moment this was premeditated. "These are events he [the victim] will never forget."
