Man denies stabbing his sister’s policeman boyfriend in Maida Hill

A man has denied stabbing an off-duty police community support officer who was dating his sister.

Hamza Farjani, 25, allegedly knifed Najeb Nezan in his chest and shoulder in a flat in Amberley Road, Maida Hill, after he “took objection” to the relationship, Southwark Crown Court heard yesterday.

Prosecutor Usha Shergill said the alleged victim was a PCSO who was in a relationship with Farjani’s sister.

She said: “The crown’s case is that the defendant took objection to that friendship and that on the evening in question, when the victim was at his sister’s flat, the defendant went to the flat and he assaulted the victim somewhat viciously and stabbed him approximately four times, causing injury to his chest area and the right shoulder blade.”

The stabbing is said to have taken place in Amberley Road, Maida Hill, west London, on November 20 last year.

Judge Michael Gledhill QC bailed Farjani ahead of his trial on December 17.

Farjani, of no fixed address, denies wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
