A murder investigation by detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit after he was found with serious injuries in Watford in the early hours of Sunday, September 18.
Officers were alerted to an incident in High Street at around 3.44am. A 21 year old man was found to have suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Watford General Hospital, where he sadly died.
Detective Inspector Pushpa Guild from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit said: “Firstly I would like to extend my sympathies to the victim’s family at this extremely difficult time.
“We believe a number of people were involved in altercations on the stretch of High Street between Oceana and Columbus Press prior to the victim being found. We are aware Watford was very busy on Saturday night into Sunday morning and whilst we have spoken with a number of witnesses, I would ask anyone who saw what happened who hasn’t already spoken with officers to contact police.”
In 2014 Bradley Cresswell was sentenced to three years and two months in prison after he pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm and also admitted a public order offence, supplying cocaine and dangerous driving.
The 18-year-old was called a "snivelling wretch" by sentencing judge, John Plumstead, when he appeared before St Albans Crown Court.
He said: "I concur with the comments made by Judge Plumstead. Bradley Cresswell has been a thorn in the side of South Oxhey for a long time. He thought he was invincible.
"He caused misery for residents and I know this conviction will be welcome to them.
Two other men, who are both 22 years old and from London, who were arrested in connection with the incident have been released on police bail until November 14.
A reporting restriction has been put on Mr Shaikh's address.
