Two teens approached an innocent boy and stabbed him in the stomach before bragging about the attack on Facebook, according to police in the United Kingdom.

London police said that the two teenagers who boasted online after stabbing the 15-year-old boy, have been caught and jailed for a total of 19 years.

Abdurauf Saheb, 18, of Grenfell Road, and a 15-year-old boy from Wandsworth, have been found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Saheb was sentenced to 14 years in prison at the Kingston Crown Court.

The 15-year-old suspect, who was not identified due to his age, was sentenced to five years in jail.

According to the police investigation, at approximately 8:30 p.m., on Saturday, the 15-year-old victim was outside the Sainsbury’s supermarket on Garratt Lane, when he was approached by the two teen suspects on bicycles.

The suspects engaged the victim in conversation before launching an unprovoked attack, stabbing him in the stomach.

Police officers were called to the scene, and with the help of an off-duty firefighter, provided life-saving first aid until the London Ambulance Service arrived.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

Officers from Wandsworth, discovered that the two suspects had bragged about their involvement on Facebook, and were able to find online videos relating to the attack.

Saheb and the 15-year-old suspect were arrested and subsequently charged with attempted murder.

They were convicted of a lesser charge.

“It is hard to find any reason why Saheb and his accomplice would choose to act so violently. The sentencing will give them a long time to reflect upon their actions,” Detective Constable Lee-Ann Doubell from Wandsworth Borough said.

The mother of the victim released the following statement: “We are very happy with the outcome of the trial. As a family, we encourage any victim of crime to work with the police. The results do come in the end. Being patient is key.”
