Officers hunting Mahad Aden after woman left for dead following attack in city car park.

 

Police have asked for the public’s help to track down a man they suspect is behind a brutal stabbing.

Officers have been searching for Mahad Aden, 21, since a woman was attacked and left for dead in a Coventry car park a fortnight ago.

Neighbours said the 20-year-old victim was found slumped in a parked Vauxhall Corsa left in Torcastle Close, Paradise, on September 16. She had been stabbed in the chest.

Since then officers have been to several addresses linked to the suspect – but Aden has not been found.

The victim was taken to hospital in a serious condition after the attack but has since been released and is said to be recovering well.

Det Insp Stuart Bell, who is investigating, said: “We have visited and searched numerous addresses linked to Aden, but so far we have been unable to locate him.

“This was a brutal attack and we are seeking the public’s help in bringing this offender to justice.”

Aden’s last known address is Paradise House in Eden Street, Paradise, which overlooks the car park where the woman was stabbed.

People living close to the car park said officers raided the block of flats after the woman was attacked.

The landlord of a nearby pub said the noise of the raids “made his building shake”.

After the stabbing police launched a major investigation with Det Chief Insp Matt Markham stating he believed it was a targeted attack.

It is understood that Aden knew his alleged victim.

During the early stages of the investigation police appealed for the public’s help but Aden is still at large.

The car park – which is close to Eden Street’s junction with Stoney Stanton Road – was cordoned off after the incident to allow experts to investigate.

It has since been re-opened to members of the public.

Anyone with information about the incident, or who recognises Aden should call Coventry Police on 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
