Clement Morgan, 43, assaulted workers during ‘short-changed’ row
A Willesden man has been jailed for a vicious shop attack where he used a pepper spray and slashed a worker with a knife.
Clement Morgan, of Pound Lane, became embroiled in an argument with two members of staff in Food & Wine in High Road, Willesden, after he claimed he had been short-changed on October 12 last year.
Harrow Crown Court heard during the row the 43-year-old pulled out a knife and chased the workers around the shop.
He cut one man in his hand before pulling out a small can of pepper spray and using it at the back of the shop.
A third man was injured when he ran into the shop to try and help the two victims.
Morgan fled the store but was identified on CCTV and arrested.
