Leon Mccaskie Biography
Who is Leon Mccaskie?
Relatives of Yasmine Wafah Chkaifi have alleged that Leon Mccaskie, 41, abused the mother of two during their two-year marriage.
After her divorce three years ago, Ms. Chkaifi, a mature student of Moroccan descent, obtained a restraining order against McCaskie and installed a panic alarm in her apartment because she was too scared of her ex-husband, said one of the children of her
The son, who asked not to be identified, also accused Scotland Yard of “doing nothing” to help Miss Chkaifi in the years leading up to yesterday’s horrific murder in Chippenham Road, northwest London, despite repeated warnings about McCaskie. MailOnline has contacted the Metropolitan Police for comment.
Bystanders tried to stop McCaskie after he lunged at Miss Chkaifi around 9 a.m. yesterday and stabbed her more than ten times. But the savage attack was only stopped when a passing motorist struck the man with a knife on the pavement and also struck the mother of two. Police said last night that a 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.
“It was a very abusive relationship that got worse after the divorce. This man continually harassed and intimidated my mother. He made her life hell,” the son told MailOnline.
He added: ‘I was always in contact with the police but they did nothing to help here. There was even a panic alarm installed on our floor; that’s how scared she was of this man. He was a monster.
Ms Chkaifi’s relatives also praised the motorist who tried to stop the attack. Ella’s cousin Hafiza said, “He is a hero and our family would like to meet him to express our gratitude. She was driving by, saw a woman being attacked and tried to stop her.
This man should not be arrested, but rewarded for his bravery. He tried to save Wafah’s life and we can never forget what he has done.”
Laying flowers at the crime scene today, Haida, Miss Chkaifi’s heartbroken aunt, said she was the mother of two sons aged 16 and 18.
She said: ‘She had a heart of gold, she was a beautiful and wonderful girl. She had friends from all cultures and we are still trying to understand what this is all about. The whole family is shocked. Her mother has been taken to hospital because of this. She has devastated us all.
Earlier, her son tearfully said, “She didn’t deserve to die, please keep her in her prayers.” Everyone who knew her knew that she was a good person.”
