A man has been convicted after a 50-year-old man died from traumatic brain injuries in Windsor.

Mohammed (Ishan) Rasheed, 50, from Wembley, died after he was found lying unconscious in the road in the Goswell Hill area on September 10, 2017.

It was found he had been the victim of an attack. He was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital but sadly died on September 12 from what was found to be a traumatic brain injury.

Kirk Bentley, 32, of Church Street, Staines-upon-Thames, was found guilty of one count of affray by unanimous jury following a trial that lasted two weeks and concluded last Friday (September 14).

Another man, Ashley Ball, 28, of Holloway Hill, Chertsey, pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter on January 10 this year.

An investigation was launched by Thames Valley Police’s major crime unit on the night of the assault. Bentley was arrested on September 13, 2017, and Ball the following day.

Both men were charged on November 8 last year.

The jury found Bentley not guilty of one count of manslaughter, but he was convicted of an alternative count of affray.

The pair will be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on September 21.

Senior investigating officer, detective chief inspector Ailsa Kent, said: “This was a tragic case where an innocent man, cherished by his family, lost his life.

“I would like to thank the family of Mr Rasheed for their ongoing support of our investigation through what has been a very traumatic time for them.

“Additionally, I would like to thank the public for their assistance in our investigation and the information they provided, without this we would not have been able to secure these convictions.

“This case shows just how easily a violent act can lead to someone senselessly losing their life.

“Although nothing can detract from the loss that they feel every day I hope that in some way the convictions of Bentley and Ball, will bring a small amount of solace to the family of Mr Rasheed and all of our thoughts remain with them.”
