A MAN who tried to rescue the victims of Jersey’s worst knife attack was yesterday found guilty of being involved in an assault which saw a man’s ear clipped with wire cutters and his leg stabbed with a screwdriver.

Bryan Marve Ogesa, who lives at Victoria Crescent where six people were stabbed in August, told the JEP how he, along with his two brothers and friends, tried to stop the killings armed with just a traffic cone.
But yesterday the 24-year-old was convicted of aiding, abetting or participating in an attack – which left the victim with 13 injuries – on 13 January at the victim’s home in Grande Route de Sablons, Grouville.
The Assize jury, which came to a unanimous verdict after almost two hours yesterday, found him not guilty of committing a grave and criminal assault but convicted his co-defendant, Alex Ngila Wambua (38), of the charge.
