Drug dealers found guilty of murder of Peter Anderson in Cambridge
Two drug dealers have been found guilty of murdering a Cambridge man in a knife attack.
Juned Ahmed, 18, and Ashraf Hussan, 20, stabbed Peter Anderson, 46, multiple times around 4pm on July 25, 2018.
The court heard Mr Anderson, also known as Blue, had gone to the railway bridge on Stourbridge Common to buy drugs he had ordered on the phone from the ‘RJ’ drugs line.
It is not known whether the attack was a result of mistaken identity in relation to a robbery on Ahmed the day before, or “simply because they didn’t like the way he looked”, but Mr Anderson was left seriously injured.
Passers-by stopped to help and then paramedics. He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a critical condition. He died shortly after from a stab wound to the heart.
Chanell Law, Peter’s fiancée, said: “These evil individuals have taken the love of my life from me and have left me totally devastated.
"Blue was a good and kind man. Individuals like these two need to realise the consequences of carrying knives. They have ended Blue's life and ruined their own lives.”
Ahmed, of Kings Road, Newham, London, and Hussan, of Eversleigh Road, Newham, London, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine on the day of the murder, and Ahmed admitted being in possession of a knife.
But both claimed they were not involved in the killing, but were both found guilty of murder on Tuesday (January 29).
The jury also found Hussan guilty of being in possession of a bladed article - a knife.
Detective Chief Inspector Al Page, from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Major Crime Unit, paid tribute to the courage of witnesses, some of whom were drug addicts.
“We may never know why he was attacked but there can be no justification for what happened," he said.
Sentencing will take place on Friday, February 22.
