An East Ham man has been jailed for 20 years for his part in a “horrific” attack which saw his victim hit with a brick before having a noxious substance poured over his face.
Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how emergency services were called to Burges Road, East Ham where a man was suffering from burn injuries to his face, arms and torso. When they arrived, members of the public were dousing him with water.
Medics described it as “a devastating chemical injury” for which the resulting treatment was a variety of procedures including skin grafts and the reconstruction of his eyelid.
The police investigation established that three men – including Sahne Mohammed, of Park Avenue - had arrived at Burges Road in a silver coloured Lexus in February 2018 before attacking their victim.
Mohammed, 28, was sentenced on Thursday, August 15 and must serve a minimum of 15 years with the remainder on license.

Another man was jailed last year for his part in the attack, with a third being charged with offences but dying before the case came to trial.
