A man has been sentenced after being found guilty of a stabbing in Acton.

Luke Rose, 19 (24.08.00) of Shakespeare Road, W7 was previously convicted of Section 18 GBH with intent at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, 31 July.

On Friday, 6 September, at the same court, Rose was sentenced to four and a half years imprisonment with a further two years extended license.

The court heard that in the early hours of Monday, 28 January, Rose attended an address in Acton with members of his family and friends.

A physical argument ensued which resulted in Rose stabbing a 23-year-old woman, who was known to him, repeatedly before fleeing the scene.

Officers were called alongside the London Ambulance Service and found the victim lying on a bed with multiple stab wounds to her body.

One of the stab wounds had lacerated her left kidney and left her requiring immediate surgery.

On arrival, Rose had already fled the scene but was arrested later that day at his home address.

He was taken into police custody and charged the next day.

Detective Constable Mitesh Mulji, who led the investigation, said: “Rose has failed to admit his actions that night nor has he shown any remorse for the injuries he inflicted.

“We are pleased that the jury carefully considered the evidence in front of them and were able to see through his lies.

“This was a complex investigation and we hope this sentence demonstrates our commitment to pursuing violent individuals through the courts, even in circumstances where victims are reluctant to support a prosecution.”
