A brutal gang who ran a man off the road before stabbing him with a machete has been jailed for 43 years.
Amir Hussain, 23, knifed the victim twice after charging at him with a 12-inch blade on Coventry Road, Small Heath. The victim had been driving his mother to a doctor’s appointment when three men launched their vicious attack on May 22.
As the victim climbed out of the crash wreckage and tried to get his mother out of the back seat, he was set upon.
Hussain ran at the man, first plunging the blade deep inside his arm.
The violence then escalated and Hussain stabbed the victim’s stomach in full view of his horrified mother.
The trio fled the scene in the Fiat Fullback driven by 23-year-old Islam.
Fortunately, a brave nurse had rushed out of the GP surgery and came to the victim’s aid.
He was placed in an induced coma due to the shocking injuries he suffered.
Two weeks later, the three men were traced to a hotel room near Sheffield on June 6. Drugs were also recovered from the room plus almost £6,500 in cash.
All three refused to answer any questions during interview but they were charged with attempted murder.
On Monday (November 5) all three were sentenced for a total of 43 years.
Hussain, aged 23 – from Bordesley Green – was jailed for 17 years.
Islam, 23, and Yousaf, 21, both from Bankes Road in Small Heath, were handed 13 year sentences.
