They include a mentally unwell man who stabbed his grandad, a murderer who killed his two friends and a rapist who attacked his victim in a church yard. In one particularly shocking case, a mentally unwell man repeatedly slashed his grandad to the face and neck with a kitchen knife at his home in south London after discovering historic allegations of sexual abuse. Another man has also been jailed for carrying out two terrifying stranger attacks upon women, where a mum-of-two died in East Ham and another woman was hospitalised after she was stabbed with a machete down an alleyway.
The monster responsible - Souraka Djabouri- has plead guilty to grievous bodily harm, theft and criminal damage.

Djabouri and an accomplice originally verbally assaulted Goodwin before vandalizing and striking his car as he drove off. When he got out of the car to assess the damage, Djibouti struck him over the head with a brick and stole his cellphone.
PC Thomas Tod, of Loughton CID, told Jewish News that “hate crime is a priority for Essex Police and it simply will not be tolerated. Our drive to secure justice, in this case, shows that. We work shoulder to shoulder with our Essex partners to take a tough stance against hatred, and we work closely with the CPS to make sure that, where we identify hate crime offenders, they are brought to justice.”
“We know this has been an exceptionally hard time for Rabbi Rafi and we hope that today will bring some measure of closure for him,” United Synagogue’s chief executive, Steven Wilson, said in a statement. “We are very grateful to everyone who has helped him and his wonderful family over this period,” Wilson added.
