Man jailed for Hounslow slashing attacks

A man who slashed two women in separate random attacks in west London has been jailed for 18 years.

Sasha Masamba, of Nicholes Road, Hounslow, had pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to two offences of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Kaja Zablocka, 19, and Deserilyn Aurelio, 26, were slashed from behind and needed stitches as a result of what the judge said were "devastating" attacks.

Marc Ashdown's report contains images which some viewers may find upsetting.
