A pair of thugs squirted corrosive cleaning fluid at two women during robberies.

Sadik Kamara, 24, and Joshua Jordan, 20, both from Newham, east London, purposely targeted ‘petite’ women with the noxious liquid on March 10.

Quyen Bei, 51, bravely fought off the raiders, after they entered her store in Hackney, the Old Bailey heard.

Kamara, aka rapper Trizzy Trapz, squirted ammonia at least three times in Mrs Bei’s face before the other robbers, including Jordan, struggled with the shopkeeper who was punched to the ground and kicked.

The gang, which included three other people who have not been caught, fled empty handed after she pressed the panic alarm.

But they struck again around ten minutes later when they pushed Thi Le Nguyen, 49, to the ground and then sprayed her in the face.

They stole her handbag and laughed as they ran to their getaway car.

Both victims suffered facial burns, but none of their injuries were permanent.

Bottles of household cleaner containing high strength ammonia were discovered nearby.

Judge John Dodd QC told the men after sentencing: ‘These are dreadful and shocking offences. You chose to rob women who would have stood no chance against you, a gang of five men.

‘Even if you were unarmed, you still chose to take ammonia with you and use it against two slight women.’

He praised Mrs Bei for fighting ‘like a lioness defending her cubs’, when the robbers attacked her family-run shop.

Mrs Bei said in a statement: ‘After the incident I was so terrified that I could not go to work.

‘I am still in a state of fear and so have decided to give up the job.’

Mrs Nguyen added: ‘After the chemical was sprayed into my face, my eyes became blurred and the snatch of my bag made me feel really scared. Thereafter I kept feeling unsafe, worried and scared.’

Judge John Dodd QC jailed the pair for ten years with four years on extended licence after they were convicted of robbery, attempted robbery and applying a corrosive fluid with intent to burn, maim, disfigure or disable or to do some grievous bodily harm.

Kamara was serving a six-month suspended prison sentence for having a knife and assaulting a police officer during the time of the incident.

Jordan also had previous convictions, including attempted robbery.

Police are still trying to identify the other robbers.
