The 18-year-old repeatedly stabbed his victim at a property in Cranley Road in what officers believed to be a drugs-related incident.

Detectives then set about piecing together Aboh-Tshiunza's movements by trawling through hours of CCTV footage, which captured him at both London Road and Guildford Railway Stations, which he used in the minutes after the attack. His DNA was recovered from the kitchen knife used in the attack which was found nearby.

This has been a challenging and complex investigation but I hope the conviction demonstrates to the Surrey public our commitment to keep our county safe and sends a clear message to offenders that our officers are committed to see that justice is done.

– Detective Chief Inspector Mark Preston
