David Smith prosecuted, for the CPS London North Team, Joshua Mensah for attempted murder. Mr Mensah armed himself with a knife and lay in wait for a victim in Maidstone Road N11, just before midnight on the 16th of July 2022. He then launched a frenzied knife attack on a 50 year old man who was unpacking shopping with the help of his wife and daughter on their front doorstep. A thorough investigation by the Metropolitan Police amassed CCTV, cell-site and DNA evidence, all of which led to the identification of Joshua Mensah and his eventual conviction by a jury this week. The defendant will be sentenced in October."
