A man has been jailed after his victim was found slumped in a car with stab wounds in east London.

A man has been jailed after his victim was found slumped in a car with stab wounds.

Remell Tulloch, 25, of Romford Road, Forest Gate was sentenced to four years' imprisonment at Snaresbrook Crown Court on December 2 having been found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH).

This conviction sends out a strong message that we do not tolerate knife crime.

The injuries the victim sustained will remain with him forever, and nothing can change that.

Hopefully the sentence passed by the court will give confidence to the victim that the criminal justice system is able to punish those that act outside the law.

– Detective Constable Andy McAlister

He was also jailed for two years for two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, which will be served concurrently with the GBH, and 18 months for burglary.

In addition, Tulloch was ordered to serve 18 months of a suspended sentence in relation to a separate count of burglary.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 8.25pm on March 16 2015 to Borwick Avenue, Walthamstow after a man, aged in his 20s, was found injured in a Toyota Yaris.

The victim was taken by London's Air Ambulance to the Royal London Hospital in a critical condition suffering from stab wounds.

After prolonged medical treatment, he was discharged but has been left with permanent scarring.

An investigation was launched by detectives from Waltham Forest CID.

They quickly established that the victim had been sitting in a car with another man, when someone threw a brick through the window before attacking the victim.

Three people were arrested in connection with the assault. Tulloch was charged on March 3.

Two other men who were arrested and charged as part of the investigation pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm through joint enterprise in September 2015.

Matthew Richardson, 23, of Aldborough Road South, Ilford was sentenced to three years' imprisonment.

Daniel Mutombo, 25, of Westley Road, Basildon was jailed for two years and 10 months.
