Man sentenced after 'brutal' Guildford knife attack

Published at 6:29pm 12th April 2018. (Updated at 6:49pm 12th April 2018)

A 26 year-old has been sentenced after stabbing a man five times in Guildford during July 2017.

Mohammed Abubaker, of Ludovick Walk in Wandsworth, carried out the attack on Oak Hill Road in Wood Street Village.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was there to meet a friend when Abubaker stabbed him while he sat in his car and as he tried to run away.

He suffered wounds in different areas of his body and lost a huge amount of blood when he was driven to hospital by friends in a critical, life-threatening condition.

Abubaker now faces 10 years and 10 months in prison after he was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court today (12 April).

Detective Constable Richard Pegden, of the Criminal Investigation Department, said: “This was a brutal and ruthless attack and clear that the intention was to cause serious injury to the victim.

“The investigation consisted of a number of elements which required a real team effort, securing a charge for attempted murder.

"Abubaker plead guilty to causing Grievous Bodily Harm, on the second day of his trial, in February this year. 

"Two cars which had been used in the incident were seized and the painstaking work of the forensic team meant that crucial evidence was found within both vehicles, placing Abubaker at the scene of the crime.

"A partially burnt mobile phone, which belonged to the victim, was also recovered near to the scene which enabled detectives to link the victim and Abubaker. 

"I would like to thank the victim for speaking out and bravely reliving this terrible and violent ordeal. I hope that today’s outcome will give him the closure he deserves."
