Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for eight years for grievous bodily harm in Wheatley, Oxfordshire.

Mohamed Mohamed, aged 34, of Gordon Close, London, was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Monday (8/7) after pleading guilty to one count of grievous bodily harm.

He was charged on 23 November last year.

The sentence relates to an incident in a car park of a supermarket in Wheatley, Oxfordshire, at 12.30am on 24 February 2018, when Mohamed deliberately drove a car at the victim, a 37-year-old man.

The victim suffered a broken leg and severe bruising injuries and was taken to hospital, but has since been discharged. He now requires crutches to walk.

Investigating officer, DC Garry Dixon, of the Abingdon Tasking Team, said: “Mohamed deliberately drove a car at the victim, causing him serious injuries requiring hospital treatment.

“This was a terrifying experience for the victim, who now needs crutches to walk.

“Thames Valley Police will not tolerate violence of this kind in our communities, and Mohamed was brought before the courts to face justice for what he had done. I hope the conclusion of this sentencing can help to bring some form of closure for the victim.”
