Balaclava killer who stabbed Royal Marine hopeful to death in just 24 seconds after e-scooter row is GUILTY of murder | The Sun

A KILLER who stabbed a Royal Marine hopeful to death in a 24-second row over an e-scooter has been found guilty of murder.

Lawangeen Abdulrahimzai, 21, fatally knifed Tom Roberts outside a Subway in Bournemouth.

The asylum seeker was today convicted of murdering the 21-year-old after stabbing him with a 10cm blade.

Salisbury Crown Court heard Abdulrahimzai had got into a row with Tom's pal James Medway over an e-scooter.

When Royal Marine hopeful Tom intervened, he was stabbed in the heart and stomach by the "very aggressive" defendant.

Chilling CCTV showed Mr Medway chasing Abdulrahimzai through the city and into a park on March 12 last year.

The killer was seen by horrified witnesses running "very fast" through the darkness in the busy town centre.

Tragically, the time between the argument breaking out and Tom being knifed was just 24 seconds.

Jurors were told Abdulrahimzai "revels in violence" and posed with knives on TikTok.

He was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder after claiming he thought Tom was a Taliban agent sent to kill him.
