A 17 year-old has been jailed for stabbing a man in Ladbroke Grove during the Notting Hill Carnival.
Junior Henry, 17, of Weltje Road, Hammersmith, was sentenced to four and a half years in a young offenders' institute at the Old Bailey on Thursday (24).
Just after 6pm on Monday August 29, police were called to an incident in Ladbroke Grove, at the junction with Oxford Gardens.
Rio Andre, a 20 year-old student, was found at the scene suffering stab wounds to the abdomen and hand. He was taken by ambulance to hospital, and later released.
The incident was caught on camera, and a have-a-go hero tried tripping Henry as he fled the scene, still carrying the bloodied knife.
The following day, Junior Henry was arrested, and was subsequently charged with GBH with intent.
He appeared at West London Youth Court on August 31, and later admitted the offence at Isleworth Crown Court.
The Old Bailey heard how Henry had been given a chance to turn his life around when he was given a community order following a gang fight when he was 12, in which a man was murdered.
Recorder of London, Judge Peter Beaumont said: "You left this court with my warning ringing in your ears that your behaviour was challenging the boundaries of the order, as well as testing the patience and understanding of the court.
"You did not heed the warning. You took up a knife in circumstances where you, of all people, did not have to use it and you knew the consequences of doing so."
The judge lifted an order banning publication of Henry's identity.
