Teenager who looted two Ilford Lane shops found guilty of Malaysian student attack
A teenager is facing jail for attacking a Malaysian student in an “exceptional” act of violence during the summer riots.
Ashraf Rossli, 20, had been in Britain for just a month when he was set upon as looting swept the country in August.
The accountancy student had been cycling to help a scared female friend when his jaw was broken in two places as he was punched in the face.
Beau Isagba, 17, whose identity can be revealed for the first time today, was found guilty of grievous bodily harm at Wood Green Crown Court today.
Lifting an order which banned publication of Isagba’s name, judge Witold Pawlak said: “I agree that this is a case in which there is a legitimate public interest in knowing the outcome off the proceedings and the identity of the defendant ... This was an exceptional case.”
