Whitgift Centre stabbing: Brothers, aged 14 and 15, found guilty of attack on teenagers

TWO brothers, aged 14 and 15, have been found guilty of stabbing two other teenagers in an unprovoked attack at the Whitgift Centre.

The boys, who cannot be named because of their age, were convicted on two counts of wounding with intent and one of violent disorder.

They attacked Glodi Mobwano, then 17, and his friends in front of horrified shoppers shortly after 6pm on January 14. Glodi, now 18, required hospital treatment for a punctured kidney after the attack.

The verdict was delivered this afternoon (Friday) after a trial lasting three and a half days this week at Croydon Crown Court.

During the trial, the jury heard how Glodi and two friends were set upon in a seemingly unprovoked attack by the defendants, from New Addington, while shopping at sports nutritionists GNC, on the second floor of the centre.

Glodi collapsed in a pool of blood after being stabbed and was saved by treatment from a passing member of the public - a qualified GP - who stemmed the flow of blood. One of his friends was slashed across the face.

The jury took around three hours, 15 minutes to unanimously find the youths guilty on each count.
