Who is Leon Mccaskie ?
The knife-wielding ‘monster’ who brutally stabbed a 43-year-old woman to death in Maida Vale before a car killed him is revealed to be her ex-husband, who had ‘harassed and bullied’ her for the three years since their divorce. , MailOnline may disclose.
Relatives of Yasmine Wafah Chkaifi have claimed that Leon Mccaskie, 41, abused the mother of two during their two-year marriage.
After their 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 afraid of her ex-husband, one of her sons said.
The son, who asked not to be identified
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.
In response to the allegation, Met Police said: “A Stalking Prevention Order had been obtained against the deceased man, there will of course be further review by the Met NPTD Professional Standards Directorate.”
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 in our apartment; 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.

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.
The man, who did not want to give his name, added: ‘The driver had them both under his car, the boy and the girl. Two old men and I had to lift the car and get the body out of it. We were giving him CPR but he had stab wounds everywhere. We couldn’t stop the blood.
Raad Jiyad, who also witnessed the bloodbath, said: “I woke up to take my son to school and heard a noise, someone saying ‘Please help me, please help me’.” I opened the door and saw a girl on the street on the ground and a guy with a knife.
The 52-year-old father of two ran off to try to distract the attacker who he said was brandishing a 4-inch kitchen knife. Another bystander who tried to intervene was chased away by the slasher.
