A teenager who led a brutal attack where a driver was ambushed by a Wembley gang and beaten with a metal pole in Willesden has been jailed for six years.
Darrell Roberts, 19, and his associates left their 35-year-old victim with head injuries that needed stitches after they hit him with the pole while hurling bricks at his car as he drove in Roundwood Road.
The victim’s wife was with him and witnessed the horrific attack which took place in August last year.
Roberts breached a three-year-long Asbo, which ends next year, to carry out the attack.
He was jailed for six years with a requirement of serving a minimum of two thirds and issued an extended licence period of three years to run after this, for the assault.
