Five Troopers to Stand Trial over Attack By Melvyn Howe, PA Five Household Cavalry troopers were ordered to stand trial today in connection with the partial blinding of an Arab student during an attack in central London. They were arrested after 23-year-old Syrian Adnan Said suffered facial injuries in an incident outside the Wellington Club, Knightsbridge, last November. The engineering student, who is studying at University College London, was blinded in his left eye and had to undergo surgery to remove it. The five, who were appearing at a plea and directions hearing at Londonâs Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court are Mark Goddard, 21, Clayton Daley, 25, Thomas Bush, 22, Maurice Mann, 22, and Ezphia Rennock, 21. Goddard pleaded not guilty to wounding Mr Said with intent to do him grievous bodily harm, while Daley denied two allegations of assault by beating â one involving Mr Said, the other club doorman Ricky Madge â as well as a charge of common assault on the studentâs 24-year-old cousin Mohammed Esreb. In addition, Goddard, along with Mann, Rennock and Bush all plead not guilty to one charge of affray. All five, who are stationed at Hyde Park Barracks, were allowed bail until October 17, when their three-week trial is expected to start.
