It looks like the UK needs car control.
Nobody needs an assault sedan.
A man who ‘used his car as a deadly weapon’ to run down late night revellers standing on the pavement has been jailed for eight years.
Shaquille Wokoh, 24, of Croydon, ploughed into pedestrians outside Mekan Bar & Restaurant in Catford, south east London, after getting into a fight at the venue earlier in the night.
The crash was caught on CCTV which was used to launch the investigation because no victim ever came forward despite the footage clearly showing a man lying hurt on the ground.
Wokoh was found guilty of attempted grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent, dangerous driving and assault by beating at a trial in February.
He was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court today with six years imposed for GBH, 18 months for dangerous driving; and, three months for assault by beating – all to run concurrently.
