Ah, can you smell the multiculturalism? The pungent stench of human flesh.
Acid-wielding thug who severely burnt two men by hurling liquid on them in parked car for no reason is jailed for 10 years
An acid-wielding thug who severely burnt two men in a parked car for ‘no apparent reason’ has been jailed for 10 years.
Rahad Hussain, 24, threw concentrated sulphuric acid at Mohammed Ahmed, 24, and Mohammad Hussain, 25, causing the skin on their face to start ‘peeling’ off.
The two men were sitting in Mr Ahmed’s car in Bethnal Green, east London, on 25 July when they saw Hussain drive past and wave at them.
Hussain returned a few minutes later at around 7pm and threw the contents of a bottle of acid through the passenger side window over Mr Hussain.
Mr Hussain said he felt a ‘burning sensation’ and ‘terrible pain’ before telling Mr Ahmed he ‘has a bottle of acid’ and to drive off.
Mr Karim and other members of the public emptied 30 to 40 bottles of water over them in a bid to lessen their injuries, the court heard.
But both men suffered 1st degree burns and some permanent scarring, while Mr Ahmed sustained damage to his ear and the surface of his eye.
Stephen Earnshaw, prosecuting, said Hussain attacked the two men for ‘no apparent reason.’
Hussain handed himself in to Stoke Newington police station two days later and was identified by the victims despite a ‘cunning’ attempt to change his appearance.
Mr Ahmed is still on medication to deal with the psychological damage the attack has caused, the court heard.
Judge Simon Mayo QC read a note from Hussain in which he expressed how ‘sorry’ he was and how he felt like a ‘coward’, but he cheered as he was led to the cells.
The judge told him: ‘This was a terrible and unprovoked attack. It was in broad daylight with people around which aggravates it further.
‘It has and will have ongoing effects on the lives of the victims. I am satisfied that you present a risk for dangerousness and I will impose an extended sentence.
‘The circumstances of your offence mean you do still pose a risk. You could still cause serious harm to members of the public.’
Hussain, of Bethnal Green, admitted two counts of causing grievous bodily harm and one count of possessing an offensive weapon.
He was jailed for 10 years with no chance of early release and will remain on licence for an extended period of four years after his release.
