Brothers Sebastian and Pedro Mateza have both been given indeterminate jail sentences after they were found guilty of wounding with intent after an horrific revenge attack on a 16 year old girl.

The court heard how the twins, now aged 19, lured Sebastian’s former girlfriend Charis Tomaszewska to their Burlington Lane home last September were she was shot in the stomach at point blank range with an air rifle.

Seven men appeared at Isleworth Crown Court charged with the attack on 5th September 2009 during which Charis claimed she was punched, kicked and stamped on, before being dragged into the back garden of the Burlington Lane home where the attack continued.

She was then threatened with a number of guns – a black revolver was held to her head - before she was shot in the stomach with an air rifle by Sebastian and “left to die.”

The court found Charis’ account of the attack to be unreliable because of the lack of physical evidence to back up her claims of having been kicked and punched although surgeons have been unable to locate the pellet from the air gun and she remains badly scarred.

The attack was said to have been orchestrated after the Mateza brothers were told by a third party that Charis had ‘organised’ an assault on Sebastian after the couple had split which left him with a broken jaw.

Sebastian Mateza and Pedro Mateza were also declared as high risk offenders who form part of a group of offenders who pose a significant risk to the public.

They therefore have to satisfy a parole board in 4 years (minimum) time that they are no longer a risk to be eligible for parole.

The brothers will be on licence for the rest of their lives.

Fauconberg Road resident Daniel Kongo was sentenced to 5 years for wounding with intent and possessing imitation firearm in a public place.

All three were acquitted of a number of other counts, including violent disorder and the four other men were cleared of all charges against them.

DC Rebecca Bartholomew of Hounslow CID said "This was an unprovoked violent attack on a young girl by a group of young men. Police would like to thank all the witnesses who provided information leading to the conviction of these three men.

"The sentences imposed at Isleworth Crown Court on 18th June 2010 reflect the vicious nature of the attack."

She added, "The Metropolitan Police and Detectives from Hounslow Borough are dedicated to making the London Borough of Hounslow a safer place to live, visit and work, our Community should be reassured that three violent offenders have been removed from the streets"
