Police Arrest Mahad Aden For Stabbing
A man wanted by police in connection with a stabbing in Coventry two years ago has been arrested after he flew back from Ethiopia.
Mahad Aden, 33, was detained on August 11 at Heathrow Airport, nearly two years after a woman was stabbed in a Coventry car park.
The alleged victim was found slumped in a car near flats in Torcastle Close, Paradise, Coventry on September 16, 2013.
Police said she had been stabbed in the chest.
The 20-year-old was taken to hospital in a serious condition, but has since recovered.
In an effort to track Aden down police issued an appeal on Crimewatch in November 2013.
He wasn’t found though despite further appeals and extensive searches.
It’s understood his arrest came after he applied for a visa to return to the UK - which alerted police to the fact that he might be coming back.
When he touched down at Heathrow Airport at 5pm on August 11 he was arrested and returned to the Midlands.
Aden was subsequently charged with perverting the course of justice, witness intimidation, possessing a knife or bladed article in a public place and wounding with intent.
All the alleged offences happened between July and September 2013.
He appeared at Coventry Magistrates Court earlier this month where he gave his address as Paradise House, Eden Street, Paradise.
He was remanded in custody to appear at the crown court in Warwick or Birmingham on November 19.
