158 TFL Bus Stabbing Thug Found Guilty At Snaresbrook Crown Court

Arslan Ahmed has been found guilty of stabbing a teenager on a No 158 TFL bus at Blackhorse Road Tube Station in Walthamstow on Sunday, January 6 2019 at around 2.30pm.

The 20 year old from Waltham Forest was convicted of one count of GBH and two counts of GBH with intent at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

The victim was stabbed multiple times after the two got into a fight and had to be rushed to hospital, where he remained in a life-threatening condition for a month.

Just a few months earlier, Ahmed also stabbed a 17-year-old boy in the neck in an unprovoked attack. The incident occurred on September 7, 2018 at around 12.50pm.

The young victim was rushed to hospital where, thankfully, his condition was assessed as not life-threatening.

The victim alleged that he had approached an unknown male to speak to him who then became immediately aggressive and attempted to fight him. An altercation began and he was stabbed.

Ahmed was identified and arrested at the scene on suspicion of GBH and taken into custody. He was later released under investigation before being charged in March 2020.

In October 2019 he was involved in another incident in Bradford, West Yorkshire, in which a man was attacked and stabbed. His injuries were not life threatening.

Sentencing for all three offences is due to be heard at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, October 5.
