Two teenagers sentenced for carrying out Royal Wedding attack in Kensal Rise

Victims had pizza ground into their hair during attack on April 30 last year

Two teenagers who ground pizza in the hair of two legal secretaries during a Kensal Rise Royal Wedding day attack have been given community orders.

Kalee Powell, 18, and Precious Gordon, 19, left Daniela Holischeck a bloodied mess after the attack on April 30 last year.

She spent the rest of the night in casualty and had to take a fortnight off from work following the savage beating.

Powell and Gordon, along with a 17-year-old who cannot be named, had spent the day boozing at a street party to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

They attacked ‘like a pack’ after they were called ‘idiots’ when they knocked a pizza out of the hands of Ms Holischeck’s flatmate, Birgit Habersetzer, in Bathurst Gardens.

Gordon admitted affray and assaulting Ms Holischeck and Ms Harbersetzer, while Powell was convicted of affray and her part in the attack on Ms Holischeck after a trial at the Old Bailey.
