THREE men who carried out a violent attack outside a nightclub in Oxford Street have been jailed for a total of more than 15 years.

Fazal Khan, 24, of Dallas Terrace, Hayes was sentenced at the Old Bailey on Monday to nine years after pleading guilty to two counts of assault and one of violent disorder.

Ziad Abdul’Fattah, 29, of Lakeside Drive, Park Royal, was sentenced to four years six months after admitting one count of assault and one of violent disorder.

Mahamoud Hassan, 25, of Waltham Avenue, Hayes, received two years three months after pleading guilty to violent disorder.

CCTV and body-worn footage had shown the defendants leaving a nightclub at around 3am in February.

They got into an altercation with a larger group of people – including their victims, who had left another venue – before being separated by security staff.

The groups left in different directions, but a short time later Khan, Abdul’Fattah and Hassan were seen running across to the victims in Oxford Street where they attacked them with a glass bottle and a knife.

All three victims needed surgery including one who had to have his nose partially reconstructed following the attack.

Hassan was detained at the scene while Khan was arrested nearby after being chased by officers. He was also seen to discard the knife used in the attack.

Abdul’Fattah managed to flee but handed himself in shortly afterwards.

Det Con Tom Aylward said: “This was a brutal attack on three friends who were simply on their way home from a night out.”
