metro.co.uk A 21-year-old woman stabbed her friend in the eye with a stiletto heal following a row over hairspray and a taxi fair. Sophie Robinson, 20, lost an eye in the attack by best friend Melissa Causer who was jailed for seven years following the assault. The attack took place on New Year’s Eve last year during a night out in Middlesborough. Causer was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent after a court heard she pinned Sophie down and hit her three times in the face. The third strike split Sophie’s eyeball. After a year recovering, Sophie has spoken out about the night to the Sunday People: ‘I want to warn people about the dangers of drinking excessively this new year – or at any other time for that matter. ‘I had never seen Melissa act violently before but in that split second she changed from my best friend to the person who ruined my life. ‘I’m convinced she wouldn’t have done it if she hadn’t drunk so much, we were downing shots along with vodka and cokes and cocktails.’
