On Friday 12th October 2018, at Aylesbury Crown Court, two 15 year old boys were sentenced for a stabbing in Aylesbury.
The sentences relate to a incident that occurred in Walton Street, Aylesbury at about 2.45pm on Thursday 14th June 2018 in which a 17 year old boy was stabbed numerous times, perforating his heart and causing serious damage to his abdomen.
The first boy sentenced was aged 15 and cannot be named for legal reasons. He pleaded guilty to one count of assault and was sentenced to a six month detention and training order.
The second boy, Kieran Okocha-Sleight, aged 15, of Aylesbury pleaded guilty to one count of grievous bodily harm and two counts of possession of a bladed weapon, and was sentenced to five years imprisonment.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Richard Bazeley of Force CID based at Aylesbury Police Station, said: ‘This appears to be a planned attack where the offenders were laying in wait for the victim to return to his car.
The attack was captured on private CCTV and shows the victim being stabbed, perforating the heart and causing his intestines to protrude through the abdomen. But for the speed of medical intervention, the victim would most likely have died.
Initially neither defendant made admissions to the offence, however due to a thorough investigation of CCTV, forensics and third party material, the two boys eventually pleaded guilty to the charges against them.
