11 years for role in Luton street attack


A man has received an 11-year jail sentence for his part in a stabbing in Luton last year, following a hearing at Luton Crown Court on Wednesday.

Sejon King, 19, of Williton Road, Luton was the eleventh and final man to be sentenced in connection with the violent disorder which broke out on December 2.

A fight broke out in the town centre, which resulted in an 18-year-old man being stabbed.

Following the disorder and stabbing, a group of men broke into a house in Williton Road, Luton, armed with knives, in a bid for revenge.

Detective Inspector Jackie Dadd of Bedfordshire Police said: “We’re delighted that the final offender involved in this incident has been brought to justice.”

“Here at Bedfordshire Police we are committed to tackling violent offences and gang-related disorder.

“I’d like to thank all of our officers involved in the case, from those in response and community who were first on the scene, to the detectives who investigated the incidents, for their hard work and help in fighting crime and protecting the public.”

King was sentenced to 11 years for conspiring to cause GBH and GBH with intent.

He will also serve two years concurrently for violent disorder and three years concurrently for possession of a knife.

Four of the men jailed previously on Wednesday received criminal behaviour orders which forbid them from communicating with those involved for a number of years as well as banning them from carrying an offensive weapon.

If they breach the orders, they will receive a further custodial sentence.
