A chef has been accused of stabbing a colleague at a restaurant in Wigan town centre.
Guiseppe Maragioglio will appear at Liverpool Crown Court next January, after an alleged stabbing incident in the kitchen of Franco's Italian restaurant, according to local newspaper Wigan Today.
The alleged victim was head chef Carlos Neto, who Maragioglio is accused of stabbing on Saturday afternoon.
Police were called at 3.30pm, after which the victim was reported as being taken to hospital and treated for stab wounds to the left side of his stomach, left arm, and head, plus internal bleeding. He is now said to be in a stable condition.
Maragioglio reportedly faces a charge of grievous bodily harm with intent. He has been released on bail on condition that he does not contact Neto.
A statement from Greater Manchester Police confirmed that officers had attended the scene, and that a 47-year-old man had been taken to hospital.
The restaurant was then reported as being closed after the incident, to allow police investigations to take place.
