A man who attacked and stabbed a man in Barnes has been jailed.

Emeka Dawuda-Woda, 19, from Hammersmith was sentenced to 11 years and 3 months imprisonment at the Old Bailey on Monday (August 16).

He was found guilty of Grievous Bodily Harm with intent after he and three others assaulted and stabbed another man, aged 19.

On 3 January 2020, the victim was stabbed after a night out, outside an address in Barnes.

Having been stabbed multiple times the victim went to various neighbours’ doors, knocking and asking for help. Numerous neighbours called the Police and London Ambulance.

All suspects fled the scene before police arrival.

Police attended and found the victim nearby, bleeding from multiple stab wounds to his head, shoulder, torso and leg. He suffered a punctured lung and remained in a critical condition for several days, requiring further major surgeries.

Four suspects were identified and arrested in total and three other defendants have been convicted and await sentencing next month.

Detective Sergeant Richard Scott said: “The work that went into preparing this case for trial was extremely difficult and complicated. This sentence reflects the severity of what was a ferocious and unprovoked attack that had extremely serious and lasting consequences for the victim.”
