The man, dressed in a white hooded jumper, replies: “I looked at the window because he walked past.”
She says: “Listen, listen, don’t, f***king listen”.
She then punches the man before who pulls out the knife and says: “What’s good you f***ing little muppet” .
The man slashes at the woman’s hand says: “I’ll stab you now you little muppet.’
As he walks into a nearby garden the woman walks after him and shouts” “I’m ready. All I’ve got is a duster and a chain. I’m ready. Ready when you are.”
