A TEENAGER has been found guilty of murdering a 44-year-old man in a vicious and unprovoked attack.
Daryl O'Connor, 18, will be sentenced on July 16 at the Old Bailey for killing Tarsen Nahar on May 19 last year.
The body of Mr Nahar, an Uxbridge resident, was found on the night of his murder in College Way, Hayes. He had died of a brain haemorrhage.
O'Connor, of Peal Gardens in Ealing, also pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm to Mr Nahar two weeks prior to murdering him.
Detective Inspector Tim Dobson, the investigating officer, from the Metropolitan Police's Homicide and Serious
Crime Command, said: "This was an unprovoked attack on an innocent man.
"Tarsen Nahar, who was also known as Cookie, was known as one of the 'street drinkers' that frequented the area.
"Mr O'Connor's actions showed his total disregard for this vulnerable section of the community.
"This verdict reinforces the MPS's commitment to protecting all members of society regardless of their back-ground.
"On behalf of the family and investigating team I would like to thank the witnesses who came forward on Cookie's behalf."
