A young man was left in a life-threatening condition more than eight months after being stabbed by a teenage drill rapper.
In the late hours of Saturday, March 14, Joshua Erorh attacked a 21-year-old man outside a restaurant in New Cross, south London. Parademics had to conduct an emergency open-heart surgery at the roadside to save the young man`s life. Erorh ran off soon after the attack.
Following the incident, the teenage drill rapper preened himself for stabbing the guy twice on the chest. In his music video, the 18-year-old made references to the food order the victim made just before the attack.
The teenage drill rapper of Courtney Road, Grays was acquitted of attempted murder but found guilty of intentionally causing grievous bodily harm. He will be sentenced on February 8, 2021, at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
“I want to praise the police officers that stopped the car and provided the victim with initial first aid and CPR, while they waited for emergency health workers to arrive on the scene.
“Had it not been for the brilliant efforts of the medics, the victim may have died from his injuries. However, his life and his family’s life has now been changed forever due to this brutal act of violence and he continues to fight for his life”.
He promised the Met Police would prioritise stopping all acts of violence and apprehending those responsible.
