polo run apartments greenwood in Four women stabbed outside Hampton Sainsbury’s ‘to get revenge on police’
“By stabbing innocent women, who were doing their shopping in Sainsbury’s, the defendant aimed to get his revenge on police, for what he perceived as mistreatment by them.”
The court heard that the day before the attack Mr Orhon was arrested and charged with possession of a knife in Kensington.
The jury was told that Mr Polnay had gonehome and picked up his spare Leatherman knife and went straight back out, without showering or changing his clothes.
After the attack, Mr Orhon admitted to a police sergeant he ‘should not have done it’, and that he ‘felt bad’.
He also said he ‘lost control’ and that he had felt ‘humiliated’ when released on May 19.
In a further interview the defendant said he had been ‘mentally tortured’ by police, and that he felt he may have been hypnotised.
Turkish born Mr Orhon, who came to the UK in 1989, lived in a housing association property “just ten minutes’ walk from the Sainsbury’s”.
The court heard there was no record of him having any contact with mental health services in the past, and psychiatrists have determined he was not legally insane at the time of the attacks.
