A man has been jailed for two unprovoked assaults on members of the public in November and December of last year.
Mohammed Kaka Khan, 29 (28.05.89), of Newman Street, W1, was sentenced at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 7 January.
Both of the incidents took place in Alfred Road, W2.
On 15 November at around 15.23hrs, Kaka Khan assaulted an 18-year-old woman by punching and slapping her.
On 4 December he again punched and slapped a 17-year-old boy. This assault happened at around 13.25hrs.
During both the assaults he used a hammer to threaten and intimidate the victims who were left with minor injuries. They were not struck with the hammer.
Detective Constable Ken Mclelland said:
“These were horrible incidents and I hope this result provides some comfort to the victims.
“Nobody deserves to be assaulted in this way and we will always use the full extent of our powers to bring violent offenders to justice.
“The arrest was made on 4 December, following joint work with officers from British Transport Police, Westminster Police Schools Officers, Neighbourhood Officers, CID and the Territorial Support Group.”
He was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison for each offence, to run concurrently.
