A large group travelled fro the London Road campus of the college in Isleworth , to Avenue Road just a few roads down, armed with knives including zombie knives .
The victim of the attack had walked to the scene with one of his attackers, who then began a brutal and sustained attack.
The 16-year-old victim was stabbed repeatedly in the back and in his forehead and rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but somehow survived the ordeal.
Hoang Huy Bui, 20 and of Chestnut Avenue in Brentford , and defendant B, who can’t be named due to age, were both convicted of the attack in court and they pleaded not guilty.
Bui and the younger boy were sentenced on October 4 for grievous bodily harm (GBH) and possession of a bladed article.
Bui was sentenced to 12 years for GBH and 3 months for possession of bladed article to run concurrently. The younger boy was sentenced to six years for GBH and 18 months for possession of a bladed article to run concurrently.
Detective Inspector Redmond from 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.”
