Fresh appeal for Yasser’s ‘ambush’ killers
It’s two years since the 28-year-old was bludgeoned by a ‘heavy bladed weapon’ in the early hours of April 13, 2013.
Now detectives have issued a new appeal to track down the three people who approached the silver Vauxhall Corsa driven by Mr Abbas.
Police reckon the food order taken by phone at Moon Palace in Old Birchills was bogus and that the dad of two was cornered and attacked as he arrived an address in Madison Avenue, Alumwell.
Mr Abbas was taken to hospital with serious head injuries but died later.
So far the investigation has seen 10 people arrested and questioned, but all have been released without charge.
Detective inspector Gary Plant, of West Midlands Police, said: “It has been two years since Yasser received his fateful injuries but the investigation is ongoing and will be reviewed on a regular basis until his attackers are brought to justice.
“People out there know who is responsible for the death of this young man and for the sake of his family – who are still very much grieving for his loss – I am appealing to those persons to come forward and help us.
“I believe answers remain in the local community and anyone with information can come forward in the knowledge that it will be dealt with in strict confidence.”
Alumwell is in the Walsall South constituency and I’d like to join the police appeal for anyone with information to contact detective inspector Plant on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
