A STUDENT threw himself in front of an armed gang to protect his schoolboy brother, the Old Bailey heard on Monday.

Undergraduate Faheem Javaid, 20, was viciously beaten and knifed when he confronted the group for robbing 14-year-old Faizan on a number 112 bus on June 25 last year.

Gang members pounded him with a brick and a motorcycle helmet near MacDonalds in Well Hall Road, Eltham, before Abdul Yassin-Noor, 19, allegedly stabbed him in the back.

Mr Javaid told jurors how he approached two gang members after receiving a text message from his brother who complained the group robbed him on a bus in Kidbrooke.

The court has heard how Mr Javaid suffered a 10cm deep wound to his back as well as slashes to his face.

The group is also charged with the robbery of Michael Maclaren on April 24 in Kidbrooke last year.

Yassin-Noor, of Rochester Way, Eltham, denies two counts of robbery, one count of attempted murder, one count of wounding with intent and one count of violent disorder.

Balogan, of Ebdon Way, Blackheath, denies two counts of violent disorder and one count of robbery.

Six other defendants, of the Ferrier Estate, Kidbrooke, who cannot be identified because of their age, all deny various counts of robbery, violent disorder, attempted murder and wounding with intent.

The trial continues.
