An unprovoked attack has landed two thugs in prison after they relentlessly kicked a defenceless man in the head at Harrow bus station.
Ali Kalaf and Mohammoud Egal were given a total of two years on Thursday last week, after being charged with actual bodily harm for last November's attack.
Both of them barged into the victim outside the station before striking him in the back of the head.
When he fell to the floor they continued to punch and kick him in the head, back, chest, groin and arms for three minutes - before stamping on his body.
He was left with cuts and bruises and needed hospital treatment for a fractured eye socket.
Egal, of Holyrood Avenue, South Harrow, has previously been in court for a number of offences including burglary, robbery, assault, and on two occasions for spitting at a police officer.
Sentencing the 19-year-old to 10 months in prison, Mr Recorder Andrew Campbell-Tiech QC said: "When you kick someone in the head it is a matter of chance. There is no way you could have known whether or not you were causing life-threatening injuries - so the seriousness is the act of kicking, not his injuries.
"You are building up a criminal record that is unenviable for someone so young.
"You have been very fortunate with the sentence, but let me tell you, if this ever happens again you will never receive such fortune again."
Kalaf, 22, of Heron Close, in Willesden, was given 14 months for his part in the attack because he had spent less time in custody than Egal.
He too has been in the dock on numerous occasions in the past - for convictions of ABH and robbery - and Mr Campbell-Tiech told him: "However this started it ended with the two of you kicking him on the ground, and this court simply won't tolerate behaviour like this.
"Mr Kalaf, you have done this sort of thing before, and at just 22 your record is growing very quickly in stature.
"I have no choice but to sentence you both to prison in the interest and safety of the public."
