Three men have been jailed for a total of more than 12 years following a violent assault in Beckenham.

On March 10, shortly after 7pm, the victim, a 23-year-old man, was attacked in High Street, Beckenham.

During the assault he received six stab wounds, including one which punctured his lung.

All three pleaded guilty to various offences when they appeared for trial at Croydon Crown Court on Monday, September 3.

They reappeared at the same court the next day (Tuesday, September 4) and were sentenced as follows:

Kamahl Cameron, 22 of Colby Road, Crystal Palace, was sentenced to a total of nearly seven years.

He was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for GBH and was to three years and nine months for possession with intent to supply class A drugs (cocaine), which he will serve consecutively.

He also was sentenced to three years and nine months for possession with intent to supply class A drugs (crack cocaine), which he will serve concurrently.

Dyjarn Belle, 22, of Bennetts Close in Mitcham, was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison for violent disorder.

Jorashe James, 24, of Lunham Road, Crystal Palace, was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison for violent disorder.

Officers from the Trident and Area Crime Command launched an investigation.

Their initial work identified a vehicle that had been used by those involved in the attack.

This was traced to the Gypsy Hill area of south London and James was arrested.

Cameron was identified as the driver of this vehicle and was arrested on March 20 - he was found in possession of cocaine and crack cocaine with an estimated street value of up to £25,000.

Forensic evidence linked Belle to the attack and he was arrested on April 24.

Det Cons Andy Brackley was the officer in charge of the investigation. He said: “Cameron, Belle and James carried out a violent and sustained attack on their victim and it is only by sheer luck that their attack was not fatal.

“By piecing together several strands of evidence, we were able to build a comprehensive case against them, leaving them with little choice but to plead guilty at court.”
