She said she was so traumatized by the attack that she had to leave London.
The disgusting incident took place around 6 p.m. on the first day of last year’s carnival in west London on Sunday, August 25.
The victim, who is in his forties and who attended the famous street party for the first time, was talking to other women on Portobello Road when she was approached by a man she did not know, later identified as Thompson.
He said, “I’m the devil,” before leaning forward, nudging him, and biting his upper lip.
The victim, who was bleeding profusely and in shock, approached the police, who escorted her to the nearest FirstAaid station.
She was then taken to a hospital in west London where surgeons operated on her face.
Police launched a public appeal for witnesses and information and, following the call, information was received which led to the arrest of Thompson.
He pleaded guilty to intentionally chatting GBH at Isleworth Crown Court in February.
Thompson, from Tottenham, north London, was sentenced to 14 years in prison at the same court earlier this month.
In a statement, the victim said, “It was very difficult for me.
“I had to uproot my life from London where I have lived for over 10 years and now I am afraid of going out alone and staying at home.
“I can’t even go to the supermarket by myself; sometimes I have to tell my 14 year old niece to come with me. “
Detective Inspector Driss Hayoukane of the Notting Hill Post-Investigation Unit said: “Jason Thompson not only caused the victim life-changing physical injuries, but also deeply disturbing emotional injuries.
“Because of this unprovoked attack, the victim was so afraid of being in London that he has stopped living in the capital after more than a decade and finds it difficult to go out alone in public. ”
DCI Hayoukane added, “My whole team is working around the clock to identify Thompson after this attack, and we have all felt some kind of responsibility to make sure he gets the jail sentence he rightly deserves.
“The streets are a much safer place with this dangerous person in prison. “
