Somalilandsun – Four men have been found guilty of attempted murder after a man was stabbed more than 15 times around his heart, lung and liver in a “frenzied” knife attack.
The victim only survived after doctors and paramedics from London’s Air Ambulance performed emergency life-saving surgery in the street.
The 29-year-old had visited Emerald supermarket in Staines Road, Feltham, at 1.30am on June 14 last year when the four defendants attacked him.
He was punched to the ground before being stabbed more than 15 times, with some of the wounds penetrating his heart, lung and liver.
The attackers then fled in a waiting car and police said the attack appears to have been motivated by a previous dispute.
Mohammed Mohammed, 21, of Copley Close, Hanwell, Zakariya Ibrahim, 19, of Chesham Terrace, Ealing, Saad Sharif, 19, and Hanad Mohammed, 19, both of no fixed abode, were today convicted of attempted murder.
Abdi Wahab Mohammed, 26, of Down Way, Northolt, who drove the men to and from the scene, was found guilty of causing section 18 grievous bodily harm.
The victim, who miraculously survived the attack, was operated on at the roadside before undergoing further life-saving surgery at St Mary’s Hospital.
He was discharged from hospital 10 days later.
All five men will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on Friday, January 22.
