LONDON: A man who deliberately drove a car into a person who had complained about noise at a party, hitting three of his own family members in the process, has been jailed.
Yasin Ahmed, 23 of Florida Street, E2 was sentenced to six years and nine months’ imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 9 February after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent, dangerous driving and three counts of assault at the same court on Wednesday 17 January.
Ahmed was also disqualified from driving for five years and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £170. The court heard how on Monday, 7 August 2017, at approximately 20:15hrs, Ahmed was at a party on Gaverick Mews, E14 when a neighbour complained about the noise.
In an attempt to intimidate the neighbour, Ahmed got into a Ford Fiesta and reversed the car into the direction of the man. He then turned the car around and drove into the neighbour at speed.
The victim, a man in his 40s from the Isle of Dogs suffered broken ribs while three of Ahmed’s family members received minor injuries from the ordeal.
