Two men have been jailed following a violent robbery in Hackney.
Reece Bailey, 29, of no fixed address, has been sentenced to 18 years imprisonment after pleading guilty to grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife.
Azemema Ewubare, 30, from Well Street, Hackney, was sentenced to one year and 10 months imprisonment after pleading guilty to robbery.
Police rushed to Mare Street last July following reports a victim had been stabbed by a group of men who then stole his bike.
CCTV operators directed police to a bus stop on Lower Clapton Road where they found Bailey leaning on a bike.
Bailey tried to flee the scene and officers ran after him. They managed to detain him and found a knife in his waistband.
Police then received information from a local hospital about a second victim who informed medical staff that he had been stabbed.
Ewubare was later arrested by police after CCTV footage showed him discarding a plastic cup before dragging a third victim off his bike to the floor and assaulting him.
Detective Ben Stone said: “These horrifying attacks left undeserving victims seriously injured and afraid for their lives.
“The sentences received today reflect the severity of the crimes that took place. I hope that is of some comfort to the victims.”
