A MAN who slashed another’s face at an Acton Shisha café has been convicted of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent.
Abdulaziz Sharif Osman, 22, of Seymour Villas, Penge, South East London, was convicted at the Old Bailey of wounding with intent and violent disorder during a row which took place in Gorst Road, Park Royal, on November 3, 2013.
Police were called to reports of a stabbing at about 4.40am and found three men had suffered knife wounds but the cause of the incident remains unknown.
Osman, who is unemployed, was found not guilty of the murder of Ismail Essa, 33, who died from a stab wound following the brawl outside the Lahvina Café, also known as the Shisha Place.
He was also found not guilty of two counts of GBH committed against an associate of Mr Essa.
Detective Inspector Simon Deefholts, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “This was a brutal and violent incident that left one man dead, another fighting for his life and a third seriously injured.
“I would like to express my utmost gratitude to the members of the Somali community who assisted my officers during the investigation and prosecution.
“I would like to reassure the public that we are not seeking any other parties in connection with the death of Mr. Essa or any of the related assaults.”
Osman will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on August 11.
