Model with scars for life after glazing in Albert’s Schloss by ‘misogynistic’ drunkard

A model has been scarred for life after being given glasses during a ‘misogynistic’ attack at a popular downtown nightspot. Khalil Bangi, 32, has been jailed for throwing a glass in the face of a woman who was running her own business at Albert’s Schloss on Peter Street.

Bangi, whom she had never met before, blocked her way and started “pointing” and “yelling” at her. She tried to ignore him but Bangi remained aggressive and angry, Manchester Crown Court heard.

He then subjected her to misogynistic abuse and called her a ‘f****** slut’. “Very understandable,” she then hit Bangi, who hit her back in response.

He then grabbed a glass and threw it at her, inflicting a significant wound over her left eye. Blood flooded her face and she needed more than 20 stitches to close the wound.

She has permanent scars and says her ordeal has influenced her modeling work. “The scar on my face really affected my confidence to be in front of a camera,” she said.

“I am now extremely self-conscious. Since the attack, the few times I have taken the opportunity to get myself modeled again have resulted in debilitating panic attacks, which have left me unable to attend the photo shoots .”

A judge reacted to Bangi’s “extremely despicable” behavior when he imprisoned him for 16 months. “It was an unprovoked, misogynistic assault using a weapon,” said recorder Michael Armstrong.

“This is an incredibly serious offense and one that will have long-term consequences.” The victim, who also worked at Albert’s Schloss, had been out with a friend on Friday, March 6, 2020.

She has been experiencing mental health issues since the attack and has undergone counseling. “I’ve played it so many times trying to find a reason why someone would do something like that to another human being just because I was ignoring your aggressive advances,” she told Bangi in a statement.

“I never said a word to you. You chose to approach me, you chose to be the aggressor. You chose to follow me after being ignored.”

The judge said the fact that Bangi had drunk an “excessive” amount exacerbated his behavior. Recorder Armstrong revealed that he had thought “long and hard” about whether Bangi should be sent to prison immediately, noting that he had no previous convictions and had taken steps to address his alcohol use.

But Bangi, of St Michael’s Road, Bilsborrow, Preston, was jailed after pleading guilty to section 20 injury, inflicting grievous bodily harm. He was also ordered to pay the victim £2,500 in damages.
