Violent thug from Cricklewood admits stabbing a man in the heart

A crazed knifeman from Cricklewood who screamed ‘Die!’ as he stabbed a man in the heart is facing years behind bars.

Parvez Ahmed, 22, of Galsworthy Road, plunged a ten-inch blade into the back of Akhbar Hussain as he walked home with a friend in Cricklewood on October 13 last year.

Snaresbrook Crown Court heard Mr Hussain was lucky to escape with his life because a passer-by happened to be a doctor.

He suffered a heart attack midway through surgery on a damaged left ventricle, spent 12 days in intensive care and contracted pneumonia while in hospital but has since made a full recovery.

Ahmed went home after the incident but was arrested later that night.

The court heard Ahmed has previous convictions for violence going back to his teenage years.
