Three gang members who bound and gagged a rival before stabbing and beating him - filming the entire ordeal - have been jailed. Salvadore Hall, Nathan Rochester and Olivia Williams broke Vincent Jordan's bones in multiple places and stabbed him repeatedly in an attack lasting around 80 minutes.

He had escaped and collapsed in the Esso petrol station on Nuthall Road in Aspley on April 2 last year after the attack. Police were called - but he would not tell police who he thought the attackers were and instead detectives had to piece together information themselves to work it out.

The investigation found that Jordan had met Olivia Williams, 25 at her address in Keverne Close after travelling there by taxi. The pair went inside - which is when the attack took place.

He was handcuffed, beaten, stabbed and had his dreadlocks cut from his head. The parts of the assault which were filmed were later posted on social media.

The trio then made desperate attempts to hide what they had done at the property by cleaning extensively and ripping up the carpets. But Hall, 32, of HMP Nottingham, was caught after being identified as a suspect and then seen by officers on patrol throwing a bag containing the victim's hair and covered in his blood, as well as a gun, out of a car window.

Rochester, also 32, was arrested after evidence from his mobile phone revealed he had been in regular contact with Williams both before the incident and about the clean-up of the property afterwards. He had also made threats to the victim and his family after the attack.

All three attackers denied the offences but were found guilty following their trial at Nottingham Crown Court of false imprisonment and committing grievous bodily harm with intent. Hall had previously pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and possession of ammunition without a certificate.

At Nottingham Crown Court today (17 June), Hall was jailed for a total of 16 years. Rochester, of HMP Ranby, received a sentence of 10 years behind bars and Williams, of gGrange Road, Torqyauay was locked up for eight years.

Detective Constable Bethanie Foster, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thankfully incidents of this nature are extremely rare in Nottinghamshire and we believe this brutal attack was motivated by a gang feud. The level of violence displayed was shocking and the victim is fortunate not to have suffered even more serious or lasting injuries.

“The filming of the incident, seemingly to humiliate the victim, also showed another level of depravity so I am pleased the judge has seen fit to hand down such considerable sentences. Detectives who worked on the case were presented with an extremely challenging investigation to discover what had happened to this victim before he collapsed in the petrol station.

“They worked quickly and efficiently, and with the help of uniformed colleagues tracked down three offenders in the days following the attack before building a watertight case against them. Although the defendants continued to deny their involvement we remained confident a jury would find them guilty of these extremely serious offences.

“I hope the wider community is reassured that when confronted with violent incidents of this nature, and challenging, complex investigations to unravel, we leave no stone unturned to bring the perpetrators to justice."
