A vicious thug who attacked a Good Samaritan after he tried to stop a vulnerable woman from being abused in a Wembley has been jailed for 12 years today.
Osman Mahdi, 28, confronted 35 year-old Omer Jama Abdi when he stepped in to defend a female friend outside his flat in St John’s Road on February 14, 2012.
The Old Bailey heard witnesses saw him knock Mr Abdi to the ground with a single punch before returning a few moments later to kick him as he lay defenceless.
Mr Abdi, who had a severe heart condition, died in hospital the same morning.
When Mahdi, who lives in Kensington, was arrested a year later he claimed he punched the victim in self defence after being hit twice.
