Witnesses urged to come forward by murder-probe cops
OFFICERS investigating the killing of father-of-two Johnny Assani have issued another appeal for witnesses.
Examination of CCTV in the area shows that about 100 vehicles drove along Walbrook Road, in Derby, between 3.10pm and 3.25pm on August 14 – the day he was attacked.
Mr Assani, 43, of Harrington Street, Pear Tree, was assaulted in the street and died in Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre the following day.
A police spokesman said: "Some of the drivers have come forward with information but there are still many who haven't. Some of the distinctive vehicles seen in the CCTV are a dark coloured people carrier, another Transit type van which appears to be a taxi and two yellow taxi cabs."
Three men have been charged with Mr Assani's murder.
Mohammed Shahid, 33, and Mohammed Rafiq, 32, both of Walbrook Road, Derby, and Mohammed Zahid, 32, of Brunswick Street, Derby, have been remanded in custody until November.
Anyone with any information should call 0345 123 33 33 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
