Neasden woman jailed for stabbing man in Plaistow
Emirates Stadium worker Sagal Mohammed convicted of wounding with intent
Two members of a Somali girl gang who stabbed a man with a screwdriver wept as they were jailed for a total of eight years.
Sagal Mohammed, of Tanfield Avenue, Neasden, and Salma Abdullahi, both 24, left Mohammed Warsame with a punctured lung after plunging the tool into his chest.
They joined Mr Warsame’s lodger, Maryan Samantar, in the attack after he objected to them staging a wild party at his flat.
When Mr Warsame tried to call 999 his head was smashed through a partially-cracked window before he was pinned down and stabbed in the chest with a screwdriver.

Samantar had been living rent-free at Mr Warsame’s home in Plaistow, east London, while she and her friends helped themselves to his food and alcohol.
She vanished following the attack last March 18 and has not been traced, but Mohammed and Abdullahi were convicted of wounding with intent following an Old Bailey trial.

Mohammed, who works at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, was locked up for four-and-a-half years while Abdullahi was handed a three-and-a-half year prison term.
Mohammed and Abdullahi each have 15 previous convictions, including a 2010 assault on a bus passenger who confronted them about fare-dodging.
Judge John Bevan QC told the pair: “You came to his country when you were children and appear to pay scant regard to the behaviour to be expected of you.
“Finally, your out of control behaviour has caught up with you.”
Abdullahi from Kentish Town, and Mohammed had denied wounding with intent and were convicted.
Abdullahi was cleared of a further charge of making threats to kill.
