The incident took place outside London Bridge station at 5.30pm on Wednesday, 25 October.

She was sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court on 20 April to four and a half years in prison.

On 25 October 2017, the victim, a 46-year-old man was walking towards his busking spot outside London Bridge station. When he arrived, the space was occupied by Ugolor who refused to move when asked.

Barbara Ugolor then lunged towards the man with a knife and stabbed the him in the cheek.

The victim was then taken to Guys hospital having sustained non-life-threatening injuries and later returned home.

Detective Constable, James Inquieti said: “This was a completely unacceptable and vicious attack which is reflected in the severity of the sentence handed to Ugolor.

“Thankfully, the man sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was able to return home after immediate medical attention at Guys Hospital. The British Transport Police will always act swiftly and robust in bringing offenders of these offences before the courts.

“Ugolor has now been brought to justice and is paying the price for this reckless act of violence”
