Lamar Stewart (left) was repeatedly knifed after being chased from a party by a group of men including Salman Ahmed (right) A partygoer battling to keep his best friend conscious after he was repeatedly stabbed was bundled away by police who mistook him for the attacker, an inquest heard. Nathaniel Van Bois was trying to save hospital worker Lamar Stewart, 21, after he was knifed four times when a house birthday party spiralled out of control. But he was handcuffed by police officers who initially thought he was involved and kept away as paramedics tried to save his dying friend. ‘Police should have came to the situation earlier – there was a lot of conflict they should have attended to,’ he told an inquest into Mr Stewart’s death at Poplar Coroner’s Court. ‘The police could have just not arrested me, but they did. ‘They could have just came there to do what they came to do.’ Mr Stewart was knifed four times after being falsely accused of attacking fellow party goer Salman Ahmed (Picture: SWNS) Mr Stewart, a clerk at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital in London, died despite paramedics and an air ambulance doctor treating him in the street for nearly an hour. The inquest heard news of the gathering quickly spread across social media leading to large groups of youths amassing on a residential street. Mr Stewart was punched, kicked, stamped on and then stabbed after being chased out of the party by a group of men including Salman Ahmed, who was later handed a life sentence for his murder. During Ahmed’s trial at the Old Bailey jurors heard the killer lost his temper after being slashed across the backside during an earlier tussle. He was so desperate for revenge that he aimed punches at a number of other revellers before eventually setting his sights on Mr Stewart. Mr Van Bois said: ‘I became aware something was wrong when there was a fight in the back garden. ‘The boy that said he got stabbed assumed that Lamar did it, that’s when he ran up the road, when the altercation happened. ‘He then got stabbed and I went to him, I held him, he was in the middle of the road. ‘I saw him getting stabbed. Mr Stewart was being tended to by his friend before police arrived and mistook his mate for one of the attackers (Picture: SWNS) Ahmed was later jailed for at least 22 years after being convicted of murder (Picture: SWNS) ‘I was trying to keep him awake, trying to keep him conscious, there was a lot of blood. ‘Someone called the ambulance, the police came; they both roughly came at the same time. ‘Police took me off him and I tried to go back to him. They wouldn’t let me. ‘They then put me in handcuffs. They arrested me for a bit of weed rather than attending to the situation. ‘The only treatment that I saw was when the ambulance people went to go and help him.’ The inquest heard the officers first on the scene gave first aid to Mr Stewart, of Mitcham, south London, who left a twin sister, before paramedics took over. But he died in hospital at 4.50am. PC Todd Farrell, one of the first to arrive, said: ‘There was previous information that a fight was taking place. ‘It looked like Nathaniel was grabbing his shirt and shaking him. It looked like he was attacking him. ‘I later found that this was not the case, but at the time I did not know.’ The inquest continues.
