Thug jailed for mistaken identity stabbing in Chingford

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Police investigating one of the crime scenes following the bloody incident in May. Police investigating one of the crime scenes following the bloody incident in May.

A MASKED thug who stabbed a man twice in a case of mistaken identity has been jailed for 16 months.

Zbyslaw Doboz, 29, pleaded guilty to plunging a kitchen knife into Ryan Hayde's back and upper arm after mistaking him for one of his friends following a row.

It happened outside a taxi office in Hall Lane, Chingford, at 2.20am on a Saturday night back in May.

After the stabbing Mr Hayde's friends chased after Doboz and attacked him round the corner in Chingford Mount Road, although he only suffered minor injuries.

The bloody incident saw much of the Chingford Mount shopping district taped off by police the following Sunday while officers investigated.

Jurors at Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that Doboz had rowed with one of Mr Hayde's friends and then rushed back to his home in Chingford Mount Road to get a knife.

He returned wearing a balaclava and stabbed Mr Hayde, who suffered "significant bleeding" and had to be rushed to hospital.

Mr Hayde, 26, who at the time was self-employed, was forced to take extended time off work, costing him thousands of pounds in lost income, the court heard.

Judge Nigel Peters told Doboz: "You committed a frenzied and unprovoked attack on a person you didn't know with a knife, wearing a balaclava, clearly intending to cause serious harm.

"It's good fortune for you and thankfully for the victim of this crime that the knife didn't pierce other parts of the body that could have caused far more serious and dangerous injury.

"None the less, very serious injury did occur on that occasion.

"In my judgement, this offence is far too serious for a non-custodial sentence."

Doboz remained expressionless as the sentence was passed.

Mr Hayde, who was present in the public gallery, appeared to shake his head in disgust.

Doboz was arrested at his home where police found the balaclava and a quantity of cannabis.

Ian Henderson, defending, said: "Mr Doboz has genuine remorse and a desire to deal with his alcohol and drug issues."

Doboz was convicted of 'unlawful wounding'.

Any wonder he knife crime is so rife with trivial sentences like this?

And the culprit treats his friend like this?

What a weird case.

Another case where we can only guess at the criminals nationality. I want to know if this man was a British citizen or not, and if not will he be deported after serving his sentence? We do not need any more vicious foreign criminals in our country.

Exactly.

I was under the illusion that, even just possessing a knife carried a longer sentence than that!

Still, at least the liberals, The Howard league. Liberty and the anti stop and search brigade will be happy.

I have complained about the short sentence - it is easy to do, just go to:

I wouldn't like to be his enemy.

Once again, words fail at the sentencing.

I like the way the judge says "In my judgement, this offence is far too serious for a non-custodial sentence."

So a slightly less demented stabbing would be on a par with, what, parking on double yellows? dropping litter?

The sentence is an outrage! This "man" (and I use the term VERY loosely) should be put away till he is old and grey. This was attempted murder plain and simple. "Unlawful wounding" is ridiculous!
People growing there own medicine get longer sentences than this and they harm no one at all, and ease suffering.
This country is an utter disgrace.

A country wide campaign needs to be set in motion and taken to Downing Street. Our judicial system needs updating in line with the mentality of todays criminal.
