The 26-year-old defendant said: “When I looked out of the window, I seen an ambulance there, a crowd of people – people just crowded around. That’s about it.”
When asked if he knew what was going on, he replied: “No.” He said he did not go outside to find out what had happened.
Two of Tariq’s brothers, Mohammed Shahid and Mohammed Rafiq, known as Tahir, have previously been convicted of the offence, which happened in Walbrook Road on August 14 last year.
When asked how his DNA had ended up under a fingernail of Mr Assani, he said he did not know.
But he agreed with his barrister, Peter Birkett QC, that he and brothers shared clothing.
