TWO men are standing trial at Reading Crown Court over the death of a Slough cyclist who was chased down by a gang and fatally stabbed.

Elias Almallah, 22, of Eltham Avenue, Slough, and Fras Seedahmed, 19, of Surrey Avenue, Slough, have been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of Kyron Lee.

The 21-year-old was hit by a car in Earls Lane, Slough, on October 2, 2022. A group of attackers then chased him with bladed weapons, before he was fatally stabbed in Waterman Close.

Almallah and Seedahmed deny any involvement.

At a hearing in Reading Crown court yesterday (March 5), a jury was shown CCTV footage of Seedahmed's movements in the run-up to Mr Lee's death when the incident happened shortly before 9pm.

The CCTV footage shows Seedahmed arriving in Slough by train around 4pm. He then went to Pepe's Piri Piri chicken shop, in the company of two other men.

Prosecuting barrister Christopher Howertson alleged that, after leaving the shop, the men went on to steal a Volkswagen Golf car.

The prosecution described how CCTV footage of the theft - which occurred around 6.30pm - shows a group of men gathered around the car.

Their faces are not visible, but one of the men is wearing a coat which, the prosecution claims, Seedahmed had worn during an encounter with the police in August 2022.

This earlier incident was recorded on a police body-worn camera, and the footage was also shown to jurors.

Mr Howertson alleged that the vehicle stolen that evening was later used to run down Mr Lee.

The trial continues.
