Police release vision after father stabbed to death while investigating power cut

Detectives investigating the murder of a father who was stabbed to death in the front yard of his Queensland home have released CCTV vision of a man they believe can assist them.

Abdul Mohammed was fatally attacked when he went outside of his Kuraby home just after midnight last October to investigate a power outage.

The 35-year-old was found dead in the front yard of the home with a number of significant stab wounds a short time later.


The man’s four young children and wife were asleep inside the home at the time of the attack.

Detective Acting Superintendent Craig Morrow said police are now hoping the public may recognise the man featured in the vision released today.

“The vision depicts a man in the moments leading up to the homicide, and the moments following the murder,” Detective Acting Superintendent Morrow said.

“We’re hoping a member of the public may recognise the man, his clothing or his physical movements as he walked along St George St and Beenleigh Road in the early hours of October 25.”


A $250,000 reward remains in place for information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Mr Mohammed.

An appropriate indemnity from prosecution will also be recommended for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the crime, who first gives such information.
