Sasha Masamba, who was dubbed the Hounslow Slasher following a number of random attacks of women in the area, has been sentenced to 18 years in jail at the Old Bailey today.

21-year-old Masamba pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm for randomly cutting victims 19-year-old Kaja Zablocka, and 26-year-old Deserilyn Aurelio in August last year.

The attacks were carried out shortly after Sasha split up with his girlfriend and he bragged about the attacks on Facebook saying:

I wanna bite your ears off, pluck your eyes out with chopsticks, cut you with a bread knife.

Masamba committed the attacks within 10 days of each other and both victims needed stitches for their injuries.
