In March three men were convicted for fatally stabbing a young 27 year old father, Nashon Esbrand, from Islington, after he dropped off his girlfriend and child.
On the 24th August 2017 while Nashon was dropping off his girlfriend and child at their home after visiting his parents in Islington, he then made his way back to his parents’ house to pick up his car.
On his way back he encountered two men, one of whom was identified as Dillon Zambon, the Police have reason to believe one of them was part of a group that had been continuously threatening Nashon.
Nashon was seen being chased by a larger group of boys through Essex Road into Mitchison, he was cornered on the steps of a building and stabbed, the Police were called at 18:50 by a member of the public saying that there had been a stabbing.
Officers who had been looking for him responded to the call and arrived at the scene of the crime. An ambulance arrived where he was taken to a hospital in East London but sadly they were unable to save him and he passed away at 2:30 am (25th August).
Detectives from the Met immediately began an investigation and after reviewing CCTV footage and speaking to key witnesses they managed to identify 3 suspects all of whom were arrested and charged with the murder of Nashon.
The men charged with Nashon’s murder were Jhon Berhane, Dillon Zambon and a unidentified 16 year old, on the 7th of March they were trialled and on the 26th they were convicted before being sentenced.
