A BMW 4x4 driver who mowed down five birthday party guests ‘like skittles’ outside a five-star hotel has been jailed for five years.

Prince Atuahene, 28, careered over the pavement and ploughed into the crowd outside the Hotel Rafayel in Battersea, southwest London.

One of the victims, Ahmed Askouri, was carried on the bonnet of Atuahene’s BMW X5 for five metres before he was thrown clear.

He ended up trapped under wooden fencing and suffered a broken leg, Isleworth Crown Court heard.

Atuahene was granted bail following the attack on July 13, 2019, and went on to rob a postman of a package containing a credit card seven months later.

Mr Wilkes was heard to yell ‘Suck ya mum’ shortly before he was assaulted, the court heard.

Atuahene drove away, performed a U-turn and accelerated back down the road. He mounted the kerb and crashed into five men, including Mr Adeh and Mr Askouri.

The men were all thrown into the air and left lying on the pavement.

Mr McGivern said a local resident ‘saw one male hit by the car and go cartwheeling in the air and come to land by the hoarding.

‘The other looked like skittles the way they had been struck.’
