Mohammed Mohamoed (photo right), a MUSLIM illegal from Egypt, was jailed today for breaking the neck of a young ballet star in a violent street mugging. Doctors feared Jack Widdowson, 19, would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair after being robbed for his mobile phone on a night out. He was found unconscious on a canal path and paralyzed after being targeted in the robbery of his iPhone.
UK Daily Mail His attacker Mohammed Mohamoed, 27, was jailed for 13 years after being found guilty of attacking Mr Widdowson. Egyptian-born Mohamoed will be deported from the country when he is released from prison. (Yeah, I’ll believe that when I see it)
Miraculously, nine months later Mr Widdowson (photo left) – an apprentice with the Bern Ballet in Switzerland – had fought back to full health due to his extreme fitness, strength and flexibility. Judge Justice Wyn Williams told the Muslim: ‘You are a dangerous offender. You caused Jack extremely serious injury and he was very fortunate he didn’t suffer permanent, devastating effects. ‘You left him lying in the street which was callous in the extreme. Much credit is due to the young man who came across him and helped him and the medical staff who treated him afterwards. ‘You will be subject to an automatic deportation when you have served your sentence – that will be in the hands of the home office.’
Mr Widdowson, one of the youngest apprentices to be taken on by the Swiss company Bern:Ballet, was attacked while visiting his brother who is studying at Cardiff University. The day before the attack he had his ‘big break’ when he was called up as an understudy for a leading ballet role.
But Cardiff Crown Court heard his night came to a violent end when he was attacked by Mohamoed who took his Apple iPhone and left him for dead in the street. A jury was shown a video interview with the rising star, from Bath, Somerset, as he lay in a hospital bed wearing a neck brace after the attack.
