A trio who knifed a man so brutally he nearly died have been sentenced for the sick attack.
The bloody incident took place in the middle of a Sunday afternoon at the bustling River Road market.
D’angelo Miller, 20, from Farquhar Road near Crystal Palace, was sentenced to six years in jail for GBH with intent on Wednesday, whilst Lutfu Zabitler, also 20, from Hothfield Place in Rotherhithe, and 22-year-old Jay Smith of Bostall Lane in Abbey Wood got two years for affray and possession of “points” and a bladed article.
All three men had previously pleaded guilty at a hearing on Tuesday October 25.
Their crime took place at 2.45pm after an “altercation” at the market on May 1, which was full of witnesses and well-covered by CCTV.

In fact, the trio were arrested at the scene of the crime shortly after the attack, whilst their 30-year-old victim was taken to hospital with such brutal stab wounds that at first police thought they meant to murder him.
Det Sg Paul Slaymaker from Barking and Dagenham CID said: “This was a nasty attack that occurred in the middle of the day in front of many witnesses.

“The injuries suffered were initially so severe this incident was first treated as attempted murder.
“Thankfully the victim has made a good recovery and all three men now have time to reflect on their actions in prison.”
