|Isleworth Teen Jailed For Stamping on Woman's Head|
Victim confronted group of youths who were vandalising cars
18-year-old Jordan Laghaney of Wood Lane, Isleworth has been sentenced to 30 months in jail after being found guilty of GBH. He stamped on the head of a woman after she challenged him when she saw him with a group of teenagers vandalising cars. He was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court earlier this month along with three others.
On the evening of Friday, 29 January 2016 a man and two women confronted Laghaney and three others who were vandalising cars in Powder Mill Lane, Twickenham. The group then set upon the three, kicking and punching them. A 31-year-old woman was knocked to the ground, where Laghaney stamped on her head as she lay motionless. She was also slashed across the face by the 16-year-old girl with a blade from a bottle opener. The group fled the scene but were detained a short while later in Powder Mill Lane at the junction with Hanworth Road.
The woman was taken to hospital suffering from serious head injuries. A 40-year-old man also required treatment for head and facial injuries and another 31-year-old woman required treatment for back and leg injuries.
Laghaney was sentenced to 30 months' imprisonment, after being convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent. He was also sentenced to six months' imprisonment for violent disorder and four months' imprisonment for contempt of court, to run concurrently.
A 16-year-old girl from Chessington was sentenced to three years' in youth custody after being convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent. She was also sentenced to three months' in youth custody for violent disorder, to run concurrently. A 17-year-old-girl from Kingston was convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent and violent disorder and was given a two year youth rehabilitation order and a six month curfew with electronic tagging. A 16-year-old girl from Feltham was convicted of violent disorder and was given a two year youth rehabilitation order.
Six people were arrested in connection with the investigation, the four charged as above and two further youths - both 18-year-old males from Hounslow - who were released without charge.
Detective Constable Kris Latham of Richmond CID said: "This was a feral and unjustified attack on the victims, who did no more than challenge a group of youths damaging cars in the street. They could not have expected to have been attacked in this way.
"However, this case highlighted the strength of the community with witnesses and neighbours coming together to support each other, ultimately securing these convictions."
