A KEBAB shop owner has been jailed for a ‘terrifying’ attack on a neighbour who had come to complain about the noise.
Fetullah Teymuroglu, a 35-year-old Turk who is director (chef) at Nisanur Ltd, admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent on July 2 and was sentenced to three-and-a-half years’ imprisonment at Harrow Crown Court on Friday, July 30.
The victim, 57, lived above the Real Charcoal takeaway in High Road, Willesden, and at 12.25am on April 18, 2012, was being kept awake by noise, so he got dressed and went to speak to staff, the court heard.
Teymuroglu, of Review Road, Cricklewood, but previously of High Road, Willesden, argued with the visitor before going behind the counter and picking up a metal knife sharpening steel which he pointed at the complainant in an aggressive manner.
The victim feared he would be assaulted and ran out of the kebab shop but Fetullah followed him and struck him on the top of the head with the sharpening steel, causing him to lose his balance and fall to the floor.
He managed to flee and call police and was later taken to hospital where he received eight stitches to his head.
A charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent against co-defendant Gaki Teymuroglu, 39, of Coles Green Road, Cricklewood, was dropped by the prosecution on July 2.
