23-year-old Ghanaian stabbed to death in London

An armed gang stabbed a man to death after deliberately crashing into his car, a court heard.

Kwabena Nelson, 22, was fatally wounded following the “determined and sustained” attack in Kemble Road, Tottenham, north London, in the early hours of 3 February.

He “curled up like a baby” as the group hit, kicked and stabbed him, with “silver flashing in and out” during the assault, one witness said.

Neron Quartey, 21, who allegedly drove the stolen black Honda Civic that rammed Mr Nelson’s grey car of the same make, is on trial at the Old Bailey accused of murder.

Prosecuting, Simon Mayo QC told jurors: “The collision between the vehicles was, it seems, not an accident.

“Shortly after the collision a group of men decamped from the defendant’s vehicle, the black Honda Civic.

“They ran to where Mr Nelson’s car had come to rest and began to attack the car and then him.

“This was a determined and sustained attack by a group of men armed with weapons.”

After the gang fled, Mr Nelson managed to call emergency services and knock on the door of a house.

He also managed to contact his brother’s partner, who rushed to the scene along with his brother, where they found him “clearly close to death”, Mr Mayo added.

A woman identified to the jury only as Witness A said she was woken up at around 1.30am by a car horn sounding.

She told the court through a video-link: “I saw four or five people coming out of it. Every door was open and everyone from that car came out.

“Every one of them was in dark clothing. They went to the other car and surrounded it, they started banging on it.

“I saw him (Mr Nelson) come out the passenger side… they started attacking him when that door was open.
