Southall - Mohamed Abdillahi found guilty of manslaughter



(Getwestlondon) A man has been found guilty of the manslaughter of a 27-year-old man in Southall.

Mohamed Abdillahi, 25, appeared at the Old Bailey on Tuesday (October 3) after confessing violent disorder at the start of the trial.
The defendant, from Somalia, had been one of a group of three men who brutally attacked Augustus Fenton in King Street at around 3.30pm on March 28.

Minutes after the initial attack, Mr Fenton was attacked again in Featherstone Road by a group of five males, one of whom was Abdillahi.

The 27-year-old victim, who was from Southall, was fatally stabbed during the second attack.
He was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries the following morning.
A post-mortem examination conducted on Thursday March 30 gave the cause of Mr Fenton's death as multiple stab wounds.

A second victim, aged in his 30s, was also stabbed during the attack in Southall. He has been discharged from hospital but has a lasting injury to his hand.
Detectives from the Met's Homicide and Major Crime Command investigated the stabbing but no motive was ever established for the attack.

Abdillahi, of no fixed address, was arrested on April 4 and appeared the following day at Wimbledon Magistrates Court.

Active police enquiries continue in order to trace the other members of the group.
A second man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. He has been released with no further action.
