Khan ran up behind him and stabbed him
Rajwan Khan, aged 18, of Uxbridge Road, Shepherd’s Bush, London, has been jailed for four years and eight months after he stabbed and robbed a boy. The teenager had agreed to meet the victim with the intention of robbing him.
He had attacked the victim outside Acton Central station in Ealing before trying to intimidate him into withdrawing the police complaint.
Khan had agreed to meet the 17-year-old boy at a park bench near Acton Central station to discuss selling an electric scooter for £200 on November 17, 2019.
However, when the victim arrived, that was not the case.
Khan and an accomplice demanded that he hand over the money with no intention of giving him the scooter in return.
The boy refused. At that point, Khan and the accomplice began to punch and kick him until he handed over the cash. The victim also gave the attackers his mobile phone.
The boy began walking away, hoping that the attack was over. But Khan ran up behind him and stabbed him in the leg.
Following the stabbing, the victim was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries. He eventually made a full recovery.
He reported the attack to the police who later identified Khan as one of the suspects and arrested him at his home.
While Khan was identified, the Metropolitan Police have not been able to identify the accomplice.
When Khan was interviewed, he made no comment to all questions asked. He was subsequently charged with robbery, grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon.
The teenager had been on bail when he decided to contact a third party to intimidate the victim into withdrawing his report to police.
The third party offered the victim money but later made threats against him.
Khan was arrested again, this time for witness intimidation. He was subsequently charged.
Khan was found guilty on all counts, including witness intimidation.
Detective Constable Imogen Bodimeade said:
“Rajwan Khan lured the victim to a location to rob him but, not content with this, stabbed him in the leg as he was trying to leave.”
“Thanks to the bravery of the victim this strong sentence shows the result of those actions.”
MyLondon News reported that on Friday, May 29, 2020, Khan was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.
