A murder investigation has been launched after a man from Wembley died following an assault in Windsor .

Mohammed Rasheed, aged 50, was found lying unconscious and injured in a service area at the bottom of Goswell Hill in the town centre at around 2am on Sunday (September 10).

He was being tended to by members of the public when police arrived and was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where he died two days later, on Tuesday (September 12).

Thames Valley Police is appealing for anyone who knows what may have happened to Mr Rasheed or was in the Goswell Hill or Goswell Road area between 1.50am and 2.10pm to come forward.

Mr Rasheed was found near a taxi rank and police are hoping that someone may have dashcam or mobile phone footage of the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Ailsa Kent, from the Major Crime Unit, is leading this investigation and said: “I know that the area where this incident occurred was busy at that time of night and that many people will have seen the altercation, perhaps even without realising the significance of what they were witnessing.

"If you were in the service area at the bottom of Goswell Hill between 1.50am and 2.10am on Sunday morning please contact the incident room as you may have information that is vital to the investigation.

“Equally, if you were involved in any way with the incident I would urge you to come forward now.

“I am also keen to hear from drivers at the nearby taxi rank who may have dashcam footage and people who may have mobile phone footage of their night out which was taken in the specific area at that time.”

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call 101 and quote ref 929 11/9 or 115 10/9.
