Teenagers who killed charity worker in London for his iPhone found guilty of his murder

Two armed robbers who stabbed a charity worker while stealing his mobile phone during a four-hour violent spree have been found guilty of murder. 

Abdul Samad, 28, was attacked by Nathan Gilmaney, 18, and Troy Thomas, 18, in Maida Vale, London, a short distance from his home. 

In a four hour period in October 2017 Thomas and Gilmaney carried out nine knife-point robberies, stabbing four people and killing Mr Samad. 

While on a moped and armed with knives they approached their first male victim and demanded he hand over his valuables.

The victim tried to escape onto a bus but they chased after him, mounted the pavement and Gilmaney stabbed him in the back, puncturing his right lung.

An hour later they attacked a man who was with his elderly aunt in Paddington.

They again threatened them at knife-point, stealing jewellery and money but despite taking everything they could, Gilmaney stabbed the man in the stomach, before making off. 

Moments later they confronted Mr Samad, who handed over his phone without resistance. 

Glimaney and Thomas drove off only to do a u-turn when they realised they needed the pin number for the phone. 

CCTV footage showed Mr Samad doing exactly what they asked only for Gilmaney to lunge forward and stab him in the chest then drive off. 

Mr Samad staggered the short distance to his home and collapsed on the doorstep. 

Paramedics performed emergency surgery in the street but despite their best efforts, Mr Samad died there a short while later.
