Jacek Bielski, 41, of Acton Lane, Harlesden, carried out the vicious assault near his home with Justyna Piersa, 27, from Brentford, Pawel Jozef, 35, from Perivale, and Marcin Tulik, 32, from Northolt, in September last year.

The 27-year-old victim, a Polish man, was beaten and stabbed as he tried to jump into a car leaving him with 21 head injuries.

He refused to cooperate with the police and has since returned to his homeland but officers continued to investigate the attack and they discovered two witnesses had filmed the assault on their phones.

All four were convicted at Harrow Crown Court and last week Piersa was the final attacker to be sentenced.

She was jailed for 22 months for causing grievous bodily harm.

Jozef was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to do grievous bodily harm and jailed for 12 years and Tulik was sentenced to 10 years for causing grievous bodily harm with intent to do grievous bodily harm, having a blade in a public place and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

All three had denied any wrong doing.

Bielski admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent to do grievous bodily harm and was jailed for eight years.

DC Fiona Davidson said: “This was an extremely violent and sustained group attack on a lone male who suffered significant injuries which have since changed his life.

“The sentences imposed demonstrate the gravity of their crime and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in this investigation including the members of Brent’s community who bravely assisted the Police throughout the criminal justice process.”
