Ethem Orhon sentenced to 20 years


Ethem Orhon has been found guilty of two counts of attempted murder and two counts of wounding with intent following a week-long court case at Kingston Crown Court. Orhon was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and must serve at least two-thirds of his sentence before being able to apply for parole.

Orhon, who went on a stabbing spree in May in the car park of Hampton Sainsburys, said during the trial that he had “no memory” of the attack and wanted “to get revenge on police” after he believed he was mistreated by them the day before.

Two school boys from Hampton School who helped distract Orhon during the attack and who phoned 999 have been commended for their bravery by being given £1000 each.
