Chilling CCTV shows hooded man running moments after father of four stabbed to death

Police are hunting for a hooded man seen running down a dark street moments after a Brisbane father of four was stabbed to death in his front yard.

Abdul Mohammed was murdered outside his Kuraby home on October 25, 2017 after being lured outside by someone who turned off the power.

The 35-year-old restaurant owner’s wife and children were inside the house at the time.

Queensland police on Tuesday released CCTV footage of a man who was in the area at the time.
