Man admits stabbing security guard at 99p store in Boscombe Sovereign Centre

A MAN has admitted knifing a security guard at Boscombe’s Sovereign Centre earlier this year.

Rajeshwar Bhinder, of Walpole Road, pleaded guilty to the offences of wounding with intent and having an offensive weapon after 99p store employee Mamadou Diallo was stabbed as he worked on May 8.

The centre was evacuated in the aftermath of the incident, which resulted in terrified shoppers seeing the victim collapsed on the ground.

Appearing before Judge Peter Johnson at Bournemouth Crown Court on Friday, 45-year-old Bhinder spoke to confirm his name and admit the charges against him.

Nick Robinson, mitigating, asked for the sentence to be adjourned, and added that the defendant was supported in court by his partner and his mother.

“Two psychiatric reports need to be prepared,” he said.

The judge agreed to postpone the sentencing until a date in September, and told Bhinder: “I will adjourn this case for six weeks in order that a psychiatric report can be prepared upon you.

“In the meantime, I remand you back into custody.”

The emergency services were called to the Sovereign Centre in Christchurch Road after Mr Diallo sustained injuries to his stomach.

He was rushed to Royal Bournemouth Hospital suffering with a 1.2 inch stab wound, although his injuries were not life threatening.

had no idea it was a security guard, i thought he had stabbed a shopper, but now it seems echo wanted to release more on what happened. he may have been caught shoplifting at some point before and sought revenge. or he felt he was being watched too much and got paranoid.

so thank god it wasnt life threatening injuries. security guards get given a rough time for doing their job properly let alone if they dont. and now this happened to one. its not fair

Glad the judge returned him back into custody or he may have attempted revenge again. Hope the outcome in September is "PRISON"

Wonder if it was the same judge who allowed that woman who glassed a guy wander free? With her record there's every chance of her doing it again. She's a danger to the public.

Silly fool he should have worn a frock and a long haired wig to Court, because it appears after other recent local serial offender cases that he would probably still have his freedom and only a tiny fine to pay.

Well at least the judge had the commonsense to remand him back into custody, thus removing a violent criminal off the streets. Shame not all judges have the same sense.

It was Judge Harrow in the case that you are referring to whereas Peter Johnson was the judge in this case and as his sentencing record is a cause for alarm I'm not getting my hopes up that Rajeshwar Bhinder will end up with a custodial sentence.
