This is the harrowing moment thugs stormed a house armed with knives and garden shears to steal cannabis plants.

After kicking the door off its hinges, the armed squad begin a vicious assault – despite outnumbering their target 10 to one.

The graphic footage shows the resident desperately struggling for his life and screaming in agony as he tries to dodge a frenzy of stabbings.

A CCTV camera captured the terrifying raid which happened on May 2020 last year in the Forest Fields area of Nottingham.

According to Nottinghamshire Police, the ten men travelled north from London in a convoy of vehicles to steal cannabis plants.

When police officers arrived, some of the gang tried to flee while others were stopped in their tracks on the M1 motorway as they tried to get back with their haul.

Josh Dawson, 19, Temi Peters, 22, Bilal Mohamed, 23, Jedidia Kibambe, 25, Gaele Meya, 25, Rex Kibambe, 27, Henock Eskinder, 28, Edmund Mackwar, 30, Earl Coelho De Carvalho, 23, all from London, and Toryon David, 24, of Ramsgate, Kent, have all pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary.

A date for their sentencing, which will take place at Nottingham Crown Court, is yet to be fixed.

The victim escaped with non-life threatening injuries despite sustaining stab wounds to the head and shoulders.

Nottinghamshire Police detective superintendent Mike Allen said: ‘Cannabis grows are often used to fund serious organised crime and drive the criminal exploitation of vulnerable adults and children of varying ages.

‘Drugs production and dealing is never a low-risk venture.

‘Weapon-enabled violence will always exist around drugs markets as different operators seek to defend, enforce or steal from others.

‘Anyone partaking in such illegal activity risks not only the police knocking at their door, a journey to custody, prison time and a criminal record, but they also risk drug dealing competitors using extreme violence to gain entry to their home and being exposed to the possibility of serious injury.

‘Occasionally offenders looking to steal cannabis will target the wrong house.’

Detective Constable Sarah Gregg of Nottinghamshire Police said the force ‘responded quickly to secure arrests and undertook an extensive and meticulous investigation involving numerous police teams’.
