A man who stabbed an orthodox Jew in an unprovoked attack has been found guilty and faces jail for the assault.
Mohamed Jama Ahmed, 37, of North Circular Road in north west London was found guilty of two charges of grievous bodily harm and one of stealing a car at Wood Green Crown Court.
43-year-old Zvi Hammond, who volunteers for orthodox medical assistance organisation Harzola was attacked in Golders Green in April this year.
Another Jewish man in Golders Green was attacked by unemployed Ahmed on the same day and like Hammond has since made a full recovery.
"I hope this brings some justice and closure to the families involved in what can only be described as a heinous attack on innocent members of the public," said Detective Sergeant Amanda Collier of Barnet Police. "The streets of Golders Green are safer now that this man is no longer free."
Ahmed is due to be sentenced on November 27.
