THIS is the chilling moment a knife-wielding maniac calmly walks into a packed bar and stabs a member of the public in the face.
CCTV captured the shocking incident in which an innocent bystander was left permanently scarred after accidentally getting in the way of the brutal attack.
His face can clearly be seen as he approaches a man standing in the middle of the busy nightspot.
But as he suddenly launches his attack, he misses the intended target.
Instead he slashes 49-year-old Eric Harrison’s face as he stands chatting to pals.
He then turns and flees – brazenly walking past police as he exits the club.
Eric has now spoken out about coming to terms with the shocking scar which snakes down from his right eye to the back of his neck.

He said: “I didn’t know he had done that at the time, I didn’t realise until I stood back up and I felt the blood trickle down my neck.
“That’s when I realised I’d been cut and then people that knew me in the bar, because I’m from Gloucester, said ‘You’ve been slashed down your face’.
“At first I found it really hard, sometimes I wouldn’t even go out. The way I felt about it, I wouldn’t go anywhere and people just kept looking at it.
“If I’d go to the shop they’d look at it. If you are here even with family they are looking at it and they talk about it.
“It’s something they are not used to seeing, a scar like that on my face.”
The suspect is still at large a year on from the horrific attack and police have now renewed their appeal for information.
Crimestoppers is also offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information that leads to a conviction.
Detective Inspector Hannah Mackie said: “The footage shows a very dangerous man who thought nothing of casually walking into a crowded bar and attempting to stab someone in front of everyone.
“His cool and calculated demeanour throughout is quite chilling and makes the video even more shocking.
“He was clearly targeting the man he lunged for but as is so often the case with knife crime a completely innocent member of the public was caught up in it and suffered very nasty facial injuries.
“We’re asking people to take a moment and register Cohen’s features.
“We think he may have taken a casual job since he went on the run and will almost certainly be using a false name.
“If you think you have seen him call 101 or 999. Don’t approach him.”
Anyone with information is being urged to contact Gloucester police on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
