23 year old Yasin Ahmed of Florida Street, Bethnal Green, E2 was sentenced to six years and nine months’ imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 9 February after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent, dangerous driving and three counts of assault.

He was also disqualified from driving for five years and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £170.

According to a statement released by Tower Hamlets police at approximately 20:15hrs on Monday, 7 August 2017, Ahmed was at a party at Gaverick Mews, E14 when a neighbour complained about the noise.

In an attempt to intimidate the neighbour, Ahmed got into a Ford Fiesta and reversed the car into the direction of the man.

He then turned the car around and drove into the neighbour at speed.

The victim, a man in his 40s from the Isle of Dogs suffered broken ribs while three of Ahmed’s own family members received minor injuries from the ordeal.

Tower Hamlets officers arrested him on 8 August and he was charged the following day.

“Not only did Ahmed hit three of his own family members, mobile phone footage showed him being just feet away from hitting a number of young children too, “ said DC Michael Dixon of Tower Hamlets CID.

“Ahmed is incredibly lucky he did not kill someone.”
