Mohammed Amjad Ali stabbed a man seven times
Mohammed Amjad Ali, 19, of no fixed address, was convicted after a trial and sentenced at Southwark Crown Court.
He stabbed a 36-year-old man in the chest seven times, puncturing his lung in the process.
The savage attack happened in Trafalgar Gardens, Tower Hamlets, on 13 August 2018.
Fortunately, the victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for life-threatening injuries.
Meanwhile, Ali left the area and was spotted without a shirt discarding the knife.
Police were told by the victim he had been in a fight with Ali earlier that day, who had then returned and attacked him with a knife.
But Ali pleaded not guilty and claimed the victim had brought the knife and must have been injured while they were “struggling on the floor.”
“This was an extremely aggressive, violent attack in which the victim suffered injuries that could easily have been fatal,” said Detective Constable Simon Maude.
“Ali has consistently denied culpability and shown no remorse for the injuries he inflicted. I hope the sentence handed out by the court will give the victim some form of closure about this incident.”Tags: Tower Hamlets
