Two teenagers have been jailed after a 17-year-old was stabbed in Watford last year.

The victim was stabbed in the chest and neck in the early house of July 18 in St Albans Road during a fight between two groups of youths.

Mohammed Khan, 18, of St George’s Road, and a 16 year-old-boy, also from Watford, were sentenced at St Albans Crown Court today.

Khan pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and was sentenced to four years and six months imprisonment for the stabbing and six months for possession of the knife to run concurrently.

The 16-year-old was sentenced to six years imprisonment.

Detective Sergeant Ian Siggery from the Watford Local Crime Unit said: "I am pleased that we have seen a positive result. A team of detectives from the Local Crime Unit worked tirelessly with the local community to gather the necessary evidence to bring about these charges ensure the offenders faced justice.

"I would thank them for their support with the investigation. I hope these sentences send out a clear message that knife crime will not be tolerated in Hertfordshire."

Wow....... now that kind of hard line sentence will send a clear message out to knife gangs. So if you brutally stab someone in the neck and chest, you will be looking at serving 2 years in jail. That will make this kind of scum bag think twice. How about 25 years for them both and 10 years for the rest of the gang who were there??

What a little monkey from a family of criminals, all who scrounge benefits from our government and also sell heroin and crack to their 'self-created' addicts.
Absolute scum, this knife-wielding weak and feeble looking boy with a family full of crooks does not deserve to be in Great Britain.
For anybody that thinks I am being biased, allow me to explain that I am british born guy whose family came from Pakistan back in 1970, I was born in Britain and am a reservist for the british army and I will die in Great Britain.
Trash like this young muppet and his lowest of all family members should be thrown into a deep pitt of poo and there they should remain.
O people, be reminded that trash such as this one is very very few in any community and is less than 1% of all british pakistanis.

The person that stabs gets 4 years and the person who was standing there like the other 16 guys gets 6years ****!! They should really sort this out . picking a random guy of the crowd and ganging up and blaming him for everything to make there sentence shorter and giving an innocent guy 6 years is ****! Where's the justice in that?? When they have no proof of anything but still give him jail is bloody **** idk if you call that justice if you really want a story maby you should do a story on a innocent guy guy sent to jail for 6 years just cuz he didn't play guilty he's the bad one the only reason he didn't play guilty is cuz he didn't do it that don't mean he's wrong and he did it!! Next time rather then judging and leaving harsh comments get the story right!!

No way. If you are in a gang and wannabe gangsta you must pay the price for commiting and being involved in criminal activities. Stabbing a person in the neck and chest is attempted murder. They should all be getting min 10 years for beinv there and the culprit should get min 25 years. Send a strong message out the Britain has tough justice and we are no longer a joke. To be out in 2 years max is a joke. He will probably be tagged in a year and out on our streets upto no good. People should complain about the sentence and the courts will look into it to see if if should be increases. Which it should be!!!!

you claim he is this young muppet yet you bring his race and family into it. it is not down to that, it is down to the individual. you are a narrow minded, racist man.
