Mark Brazant was sentenced on Wednesday, September 16 to life with a minimum term of 11 years, and will initially serve his sentence in a secure hospital - if and when it is deemed appropriate, he will be moved to serve the remainder of the term in prison. The 44-year-old picked the mother at random after travelling around London for hours on public transport looking for a victim.
The stabbing happened on December 30 on Downton Road, Streatham Hill, just days after Brazant had been released from jail, and has a history of attacking lone women for no reason - he had previously carried out four assaults in one day, reports the BBC. Three days after the attack on this mother, following extensive media coverage, Brazant handed himself into a police station. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder, possession of an offensive weapon and possession of a pointed/bladed article on Thursday, January 2. He eventually pleaded guilty to all charges. Judge Anglela Rafferty QC remarked on how courageous the victim was during both the attack, and her appearance at court during trial.
