A 20-year-old from Brentford has been jailed for over 12 years for his part in an attack on a student in which the victim was repeatedly stabbed in the back and forehead.

The 16-year-old victim was taken to hospital after the assault with injuries which were described at the time as life-threatening.

Hoang Huy Bui was convicted at Isleworth Crown Court along with another defendant who was a minor after they both pleaded not guilty to Grievance Bodily Harm (GBH) and possession of a bladed article. The minor was sentenced to six years for GBH and 18 months for possession of a bladed article to run concurrently.

The court was told that on 15 March 2019, a group from West Thames College including the victim and one of the defendants made their way from the college on London Road to Avenue Road, Isleworth where the victim was attacked with zombie style knives.

Detective Inspector Redmond – West Area CID said “Knife enabled crime is a serious concern to officers on the West Area. It was through the hard work and dedication of officers that we were able to secure the convictions of both defendants.

“This should be seen as a warning to those involved in knife crime. If you use a knife to cause harm or threatening others and you are convicted then a lengthy sentence can reflect the severity of the crime.”
