John Kafunda and Reece Donovan convicted of cowardly attack on Ashraf Rossli
JOHN Kafunda and Reece Donovan have been convicted by jury of mugging injured Malaysian student Ashraf Rossli, 21, in Barking during last August’s London riots.
Beau Isagba had broken Rossli’s jaw and stolen his bike when the heroes arrived.
At Wood Green Crown Court, Kafunda 22, of Ilford, was convicted of robbery and violent disorder. Donovan, 24, of Romford, has been convicted of theft, violent disorder. He would go on to burgle a Tesco store.
Donovan stole Rossli’s Sony Playstation and games worth £500.
Rossli had told Wood Green Crown Court:
“As I sat on the pavement with blood pouring from my mouth I remember being approached by a male who asked if I was okay. I remember being pulled to my feet then I felt someone again tugging at my rucksack. I was not in a position to defend myself as I was still suffering from the effects of being hit. I knew they were stealing from me but I could do nothing. Once they had taken what they wanted they left.”
