Suspect in Knife Attacks Is Arrested over Garage Murder


Davenport, Justin, The Evening Standard (London, England)


Byline: JUSTIN DAVENPORT

A MAN who allegedly went on a knife rampage attacking three people has now been arrested for the murder of a motorist.

The 33- year- old Albanian national, who was originally held in connection with attacks yesterday on three people in which two were seriously injured, is also being questioned about the murder of delivery driver Qamar Mirza, who was killed on a garage forecourt the previous night.

This is the first picture of 48-year-old Mr Mirza, who was stabbed with an eight-inch kitchen knife as he cleaned his windscreen at a Jet garage in Cricklewood Broadway at 1.45am on Wednesday.

Described by police as a hardworking father of six children, he was returning to his home near the petrol station at the end of a day's work.

The man arrested was held by a police dog handler after a string of attacks in the early hours of yesterday.

Police initially said the two nights' incidents were not connected because the man held did not match the description given by witnesses to the murder.

The first of the string of attacks yesterday came at 12.07am when an 18-year-old man was knifed in the back as he stood at a bus stop in Cricklewood Lane. He was taken to the Royal Free hospital and is in a stable but serious condition.

Two minutes after that attack, a woman made an emergency call from Cricklewood Lane saying she was being stalked by a white man.

She was not harmed.
