|Wood Lane Attackers Jailed for Almost Six Years|
Man and Woman's assault with bricks detached victim's ear
A man from Hammersmith and woman from North Kensington who carried out a vicious attack with bricks in Wood Lane, close to Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherd's Bush have been jailed for nearly six years.
The attack resulted in their victim needing surgery to re-attach his ear.
Abdi Ahmed, 25 of Stamford Brook Road, W6 and Wafa Sheikh, 33 of Tollbridge Close, W10 were jailed at Isleworth Crown Court for four and a half years and 17 months respectively.
On July 18, 2013 the victim - a 54 year-old man - was sitting in a friend's house in Wood Lane when they heard a banging on the window.
When he went outside to see what was happening he was attacked by the pair with bricks, sticks and a bicycle. It was one the bricks which caused his ear to become detached from his face resulting in surgery.
" The impact of the assault on the victim has been traumatic and life changing. I hope this sentence will reassure the public and the victim that justice has been done."
