Yvon Nzeza Phyl, 25, Guynel Henriet, 21, and Nahom Medhanie, 22, appeared at Wood Green Crown Court yesterday - December 23 - where they were sentenced.
Police were called at 6.21pm on May 24 to Islip Street following reports of someone being chased by a group of men, at least one of whom was reported at the time to be armed with a knife.
