Pair charged with attack on homeless man
Two people were charged today with slitting the throat of a homeless man in a horrific street attack.
Police believe Jodie Dobby, 22, and Sonni Dhillon, 19, were behind the violent assault in Isleworth, west London.
The victim, named locally as 46-year-old Owen Allen, was found lying in a bush with serious injuries by firefighters called to a small blaze nearby.
Paramedics discovered a large wound to his throat as well as stab wounds to his body. He had also been badly beaten.
The attack took place in Mill Plat, a short distance from West Middlesex University Hospital, at about 9pm last Friday.
Mr Allen remained in hospital today, where his condition was described as stable.
Dobby, of no fixed address, and Dhillon, of Cardington Square, Hounslow, will appear at Feltham Magistrates' Court later today.
They have been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
