A GANG who attacked two boys on a train handed themselves in after an appeal in the Chronicle.
Sufi Sufi, 18, of Kings Avenue, Greenford, Hisham Jama, 18, of Palm Grove, Ealing, Suhaib Erekat, of Appletree Avenue, West Drayton, and Dwayne Pennycooke, 18, of Navigator Drive, Southall, punched and stamped on two 17-year-old boys' faces aboard a train at Brentford in March.
The gang stole the victims' wallets and phones, and other items, before kicking them and leaving the train at Chiswick.
Their crime was featured by the Chronicle in April, and shortly afterwards Sufi and Jama handed themselves into the police and Erekat and Pennycooke surrendered themselves a week later, after seeing their pictures in the Evening Standard.
The group admitted two counts of robbery each and were jailed last on May 24 at Isleworth Crown Court.
Sufi was sentenced to 30 months, Jama to 28 months, Suhaib to 30 months and Pennycooke to 24 months. They all had to pay £120 compensation apart from Pennycooke who had to pay £100.
Detective Constable Mark Agrippa of British Transport Police (BTP) said: "This was a callous robbery on the victims, which was understandably a terrifying experience for them. Not only did they have their valuables stolen, they also received injuries to their faces due to the violent nature of the incident.
"I welcome the result handed down to these four men, and hope it sends out a clear message that BTP, and the courts, do not tolerate this kind of behaviour on the railway and we will do everything in our power to ensure that those responsible face justice."
