The family of Mohammed Aman Ashraq have paid an emotional tribute to their son, grandson and brother after he was stabbed to death in Wexham. Mohammed, pictured who wanted to be a professional boxer, was stabbed in Benjamin Lane, Wexham at 7.55pm on Saturday, January 4. The 18-year-old, who lived in Slough, was taken to Wexham Park Hospital but died later that night.

In a statement released through Thames Valley Police the family said: "On the January 5, 2020, we lost our Mohammed. We miss him dearly and want everyone to pray for him. Mohammed was very calm, supportive and showed respect towards everyone. He was funny and loved goofing around with his siblings. A few months back, after winning a very important match, Mohammed asked his mom for a cake as a reward as he had been on a very strict diet for months," the family statement continued.

"He used to train his sisters for boxing and helped them to work out. They miss his laughter. He used to bring joy to the family. His youngest sister called him 'Amani' and she was his favourite. They used to play video games together and they will all miss his hugs."

Hamza Mahmood, 18, and Mohammed Hussain, 18, have both been charged with Mr Ashraq's murder and appeared at Slough Magistrates' Court on Thursday (January 9). The next court date is currently unknown. An 18-year-old man from Slough arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice has been bailed until February 4, Thames Valley Police said.
