Southend murder: Witness - we tried to save him

  • York Road community call for CCTV

A WOMAN spoke of her shock at seeing the Southend murder victim lying in a pool of blood as neighbours tried to stem the bleeding.

The woman, in her twenties, who asked not to be named, saw 24-year-old Hassan Mohammed unconscious on steps leading to a flat in York Road after being stabbed in the chest and back.

The man was attacked outside a property at the junction of York Road and Old Southend Road at about 7pm on Monday. He died in hospital on Tuesday morning.

After hearing shouting, the woman looked out of her window and saw men running away from the victim.

She said: “I’m still in shock. I saw a group of males. They were all coming out of the flats and going towards the town.

“Five or ten minutes later, they came back and all of a sudden, there were words and noises, lots of shouting, saying something to the man who had been stabbed.

“I couldn’t make out what they were saying, but when I looked out of my window I saw a young man collapsed. I saw the stab wounds in his front and back. He may have been stabbed in the heart.

“As soon as they realised he had been stabbed, two men ran off. My brain started kicking in and I thought this man could die.’

“There was blood everywhere. I could see the holes and blood pouring out. They didn’t look big but they looked deep. The blood was gushing out.

“A lot of neighbours came out to him. People were trying to help him, trying to stop the bleeding. My neighbour shouted ‘Grab towels, grab towels!’

“She was trying to stop it and two other people also tried to help by putting pressure on the wounds.

“Someone called the police and ambulance, who were there within minutes.”

The victim could be heard screaming as he was transferred to an air ambulance, which had landed nearby in the Seaway car park.

The woman added: “I feel sick to the stomach. I think, why him? Why now? I’m still trying to figure out, if I saw someone with a weapon.

“It made me very upset and it will stick with me for a while.”

Gangs

FEARS have been raised of an emerging gang culture taking hold in Southend, though a police study has ruled out such a trend.

Residents have blamed the killing on drug gangs operating in the area, but a recently- commissioned police study found gangs weren’t to blame for an increase in violent crime.

Speaking about the murder, a Kursaal ward resident, who asked not to be named, said: “Sometimes it can be scary. These incidents are coming closer and closer to your own doorstep. It’s definitely gang or drug-related. I guarantee there will be a comeback within five days.”

Another said: “It doesn’t surprise me, it’s all probably drug related. Drugs and drink are all the issues around here.

“I have a four-year-old and we walk up the road and he says ‘mummy, that man isn’t very well’. You just have to be blinkered to what’s going on around you.”

Essex Police and Crime Commissioner Nick Alston has urged residents not to jump to conclusions about the case.

He said: “The suspected murder in Southend is a shocking event.

“My thoughts and sincere condolences are with the family and friends of the young man who sadly lost his life.

“However, the detectives must be allowed to pursue all avenues and all lines of investigation to bring the person or people responsible for this crime to justice.”

CCTV

RESIDENTS say streets near where the man was stabbed should have CCTV cameras to deter criminals.

Some say antisocial behaviour is a growing problem in and around York Road, and Monday night’s murder is just another setback for the community.

Echo:

Gloria Terrell, 76, who lives nearby, said: “It’s terrible around here. If you aren’t clued up around here there’s a chance you will get robbed. They should have cameras.

There’s one at the bottom of Southchurch Avenue, but that’s just facing the seafront. They should be here, as this is the main area where all the crime is.”

Another resident said: “So many bad things used to happen around here. People say it’s completely different now, but then when something like this happens it makes you think maybe it’s not.”

Labour Kursaal ward councillor, Ann Jones, described the mood after the murders as “sombre”.

She said: “If people say they want CCTV, we can put that proposal forward, but there is a camera nearby, and at the end of the road, and it wouldn’t have stopped anything.

“York Road has this reputation, but for every day when we wake up and something bad has happened, we have a lot more where nothing has happened.”

So, all over the local residents state the obvious and say there is a gang problem :

"Residents have blamed the killing on drug gangs operating in the area"
"It’s definitely gang or drug-related. I guarantee there will be a comeback within five days."
"It doesn’t surprise me, it’s all probably drug related"
& Eye whiteness describe a 'gang' of men who did the murder.

Yet the police say there is no gang problem and not to jump to conclusions. If the police are not aware of the gang problem, that all local residents clearly are I suggest their finger is off the pulse and they have no control of certain areas.
I would be more happy, if they came out and said - yes their is a gang problem, a violent local gang imitating london gangs & also london gangsters coming here to take over the drug trade. However we are on top of it and will be coming down hard on anyone suspected of taking part, we will harass them & their families, will bring them in and charge them for every misdemeanor they are even suspected of. We will start by charging all four or five that we have arrested with murder (regardless of who had the knife) & we will also be charging their associates with anything we can related to the killing.

This paragraph says it all. And it's OK Nick Alston saying not to jump to conclusions but why shouldn't people be able to express their worst fears? Because they might "offend" somebody.

No, tell the truth. This is what this country has now become... a hellhole of gang warfare in which drug dealing scum flourishes and this sort of crime is now commonplace.

And we all know which political party and former disastrous administration invited and encouraged it to flourish.

Yes, Labour's obsession with social engineering on a mass scale - and funny thing is, they STILL persist in promoting it.

So many believe gang culture is new and that in the good old days this didn't happen.
50's teddy boys razoring people. 60's mods & rockers stabbing each other. 70's Skinheads and football hooligans running amok.
Yes we have issues now, but it is not new, it is simply different type of gang.
To rid ourselves of this type we need to dramitically change drug laws. Whilst it is a big money buisness for dealers it will only grow.

We now sadly live in a world of PR.
The Police Commissioner and the Council will never admit to any problem which would reflect badly on themselves in regard to their accountability.
Even if an event happens it will be spun as a one off incident that has come out of the blue and has absolutely no relation to what residents have already complained and reported.
Instead of fixing the plumbing they paint the house to make everything look rosy and really they haven't done a thing constructive to solve the problem.
As sad as this disgusting killing is, it is a prime opportunity for the authorities we pay to protect us, to come down hard on all the elements that combine to create the environment for this shameful act to happen.
I know the police can't comment on this specific crime until the investigation is complete. But if this (or any) area is plummeting down hill, surely a murder should be enough to start listening to the people who have to live through all of this day to day, and do something to help the people they are charged with protecting.

I lived in and around York Rd for 22 years and, whilst it's always been a rough area, it's deteriorated greatly recently. Police often only have an idea of this type of criminality if people report it; many don't bother. I used to attend a neighbourhood watch meeting every couple of months, held specifically for Kursaal ward. Always the same 5 or 6 people attending, the police were there, the council, occasionally fire brigade, but very few residents, those who knew about it didn't bother going cos it was a Monday evening out of their busy TV watching calendar. Report what you see people, bombard the police with information about crime in your area. My daughter knew the man who was killed and wasn't in the least bit surprised it happened having been threatened by him herself.

This is a fact, the police know it - they know who's responsible most of the time but good old 'Human Rights', stupid Judges and defence lawyers do everything they can to protect the criminal.
