Victim was stabbed and coshed outside The Westbury in June last year
Three teenagers involved in a fight during which a pub reveller was stabbed and coshed with a bottle have been locked up.
Nathan Franklin, 18, of Edgware Road, Dollis Hill, Ricardo Brome-Anderson, of Gorefield Place, Kilburn, and Kumar Edghill-Auld, 19, from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, attacked the 23-year-old man on June 18 last year.
Harrow Crown Court heard the victim had been out with friends at The Westbury in Kilburn High Road, Kilburn, when he became embroiled in an argument with the three men outside the pub.
After the attack he was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington by his friends where medics alerted the police.
The trio were arrested six days later and subsequently charged.
Yesterday, all three were convicted of affray and sentenced to 10 months.
Franklin was also found guilty of possessing a knife.
PC Franki Davis from Brent Violent Crime Unit said: “The sentences of the three young men reflect the serious consequences of carrying and using a knife to cause harm to someone.
“Brent CID worked closely with the South Kilburn Safer Neighbourhoods Team to quickly identify those responsible and take them off the streets to prevent them causing harm to anyone else and further disrupting the local community.”
