Stabbing victim lost his spleen after he was knifed by his dad on Christmas Day

A stabbing victim made an emotional video call to his girlfriend to tell her he loved her and thought he was, “going to die”, after his dad attacked him. Luckas Fugler, 28, had argued with dad, Mark Fugler, on Christmas Day, 2021.

The pair fell out over £500 owed in missed rent when Luckas’ parents were guarantors. Mark Fugler also made some unpleasant comment’s about his son’s partner who had announced she was expecting a child.

“There was pushing and shoving which led to a fist fight between them,” said Anthony Cheung, prosecuting. Mrs Fugler came out to see her son standing over his dad punching him to the head three or four times.

As she screamed, the defendant got off the floor, went inside and grabbed a kitchen knife.

He went back towards his son, pulling his wife out of the way, and punched him. Luckas felt a sharp pain to his left side and could not breathe.

His dad, of Southwell Road West, Mansfield, said he was going to kill him, while Luckas staggered onto the street and made the heartfelt video call to his partner.

When cops arrived, they could see he was not in a good way. He was vomiting in his blood-drenched clothes with a stab wound to his side. The major trauma team resuscitated him at hospital.

But he lost his spleen and will require antibiotics for at least two years. His statement revealed how he was greatly affected and he has sought help from the crisis team. However, he did not want to see his father sent to prison.

Mitigating, Shannon English said Mark Fugler is 59 and a father-of-two – one being his son. “It is fair to say there is no suggestion he had been anything but a good father prior to the commission of this offence”.

Mrs Fugler has stood by her husband of nearly 30 years and remains with him, offering him support, she said. They both have carer responsibilities for a member of the family with Alzheimer’s.

Of the offence, she said: “Unfortunately, on this date, he made a very, very grave mistake which he will have to live with for the rest of his life”. Judge Simon Mayo sentenced Fugler to two years and four months in prison for an offence of wounding which he admitted.

He told Fugler he had stabbed his son in the side of his body, penetrating his lung, and damaging his spleen, which had to be removed. “You are not a man unacquainted with violence,” he added. “In 2020, you arranged a fight with an opposing football fanatic and caused a fracture to his cheekbone.”
