A thug who struck an innocent member of the public in the face with a Jack Daniels bottle, knocking him unconscious in a “sinister” attack has been jailed for four years.

Shihab Osmani, 29 of Thorngrove Road, Upton Park, struck the 28-year old victim just before 2.30am on Saturday June 29 2013 in Curtain Road, Shoreditch.

Members of the public helped the man until the London Ambulance Service arrived and a friend of the victim assisted police in identifying the suspect who was arrested at the scene.

Osmani was found guilty of wounding with intent and possession of a weapon at Wood Green Crown Court and sentenced to four years imprisonment on Friday February 28.

Det Const Zoe Jelliman from the Hackney violent crime unit said: “This was a sinister attack on an innocent member of the public who sustained serious injuries to his face.

“After a week’s trial Mr Osmani was found guilty and the four year sentence reflects the circumstances of this crime and the dangerousness of the offender.”
