Slough car attack man's death treated as murder

A murder investigation has begun after a man who was dragged from his car and beaten by a group of 12 men died, police said.

Kamran Maman, 36, was assaulted in Slough, Berkshire on Saturday morning. He died from his injuries on Monday.

A 31-year-old man from Slough was arrested on suspicion of murder at an address in the town earlier.

The attack in Brammas Close happened as Mr Maman was travelling in a car with a group of friends at about 03:00 BST.

'Very rare'

Their vehicle was attacked by the group, described by police as mostly black and wearing dark hooded tops.

Police say an altercation took place between the two groups of men in which Mr Maman was dragged out of the car and seriously assaulted.

Some of the group left the scene in a grey, five-door Ford Mondeo with the registration number BL55 SXY.

Det Supt Christopher Ward, from Thames Valley Police, said: "Although we have arrested one person, we are still looking to trace a number of other suspects.

"I would like to reassure residents that incidents of this nature are very rare. Officers have been in the neighbourhood speaking to residents and offering reassurance."
