A MAN has been sentenced to 11 years in prison following a robbery attempt on a victim in Hanwell, which left him with multiple stab wounds.

On February 26, Altahir Mohammed, 30, was found guilty of attempted robbery, GBH and possession of an offensive weapon.

On December 4, 2019, police were called to Dock Meadow Reach just after midnight, after receiving calls of a man being chased with a stick.

Once officers arrived on the scene, they located a 42-year-old man with multiple stab wounds who stated that two men had attempted to rob him of this watch.

The victim had been at a casino earlier in the night and while driving home noticed a vehicle acting suspiciously.

Arriving home, he got out of his car and was immediately approached by two men, one brandishing a knife and demanding he hand over his watch.

The victim refused and was set upon by the suspects who stabbed him four times.

He fought them off using a fence panel, causing the men to flee.

The victim suffered non-life changing injuries and will make a full recovery.

A trace of blood believed to be that of one of the suspects was retrieved from the scene and was identified as coming from Altahir Mohammed, of Croft Street, Southwark.

During a search of Mohammed's home address, evidence was found that he attended hospital with an injury on December 5, a day following the attack.

He was charged with all three offences and remanded to Uxbridge Magistrates Court the following day, before being sentenced last month.

Trainee Detective Constable Theisinger-James from West Area CID said: "Altahir Mohammed denied responsibility for his actions and forced the victim to be put through a trial.

"This was an extremely violent incident, which the victim suffered physical and psychological effects.

"I want to commend the victim on his bravery throughout this case and I hope this sentence brings closure to his horrific ordeal.

"The sentence given goes to show how seriously the criminal justice system takes incidents such as these."
