Man jailed for student attack convicted of student attackSeven years for Malaysian attack
Saturday 10 March 2012
An 18-year-old was jailed for seven years yesterday after being convicted of attacking a Malaysian accountancy student and other offences during the London riots.
Beau Isagba's attack on Ashraf Rossli, 20, which broke his jaw in two places, preceded a second crime in which items were taken from the victim's rucksack by people posing as good Samaritans.
The incident was filmed and put on YouTube, prompting widespread condemnation.
Judge Witold Pawlak, sitting at Wood Green Crown Court in north London, said that 54 of the 84 months he was imposing, to be served in a young offenders' institution, were for the attack on Mr Rossli in August last year. He told Isagba he could expect to be released after 42 months, with the remainder to be served on licence.
Mr Rossli had been in Britain for just a month.
