Two brothers have been jailed for their role in a machete attack at a Bristol superstore which left two other men seriously injured. Reveal body cameras contributed to their sentencing.
Razwan Hussain, 34, and his 36-year-old brother Naveed, both of St Marks Road in Bristol, were jailed for 10-and-a-half years and two years respectively at Bristol Crown Court earlier today.
They attacked a 44-year-old man and a 21-year-old man at the Tesco Extra store in Eastville at around 6.30pm on Friday 31 August. Both victims were left with serious injuries.
Following the sentencing, Chief Constable Andy Marsh praised the bravery of members of the public who rushed to the aid of the two victims and the professionalism of officers who were first on the scene.
He said: “I’ve watched CCTV showing the incident unfold as well as Body Worn Video footage of officers who were first on the scene and it’s shocking.
“Body Worn Video footage shows the response of officers who were first on the scene and they acted with calm professionalism, swiftly taking charge in what were chaotic circumstances. I also want to praise everyone involved in the search for the offenders and those who worked on the resulting investigation.
“The video footage speaks for itself and both brothers had to admit their guilt due to the overwhelming evidence against them.”
