A doorman and former bodyguard to the stars was stabbed to death outside his home by two machete-wielding teenagers on a moped, a court has heard.

Ricky Hayden, 27, ran out of his house in Gibbfield Close, Chadwell Heath, on Tuesday, September 13 in only a pair of boxer shorts, believing the youths were about to snatch his brother’s scooter, the Old Bailey was told this morning.

But Ricky, along with his 21-year-old brother Perry and their father Paul, 55, were allegedly confronted by Tommy Roome and Tarrell Hinds armed with two large machetes.

Both Roome, 19, of Rams Grove, Chadwell Heath, and Tarrell Hinds, 20, of Manford Cross, Hainault have both been charged with murdering Ricky, who worked at Kosho Bar in Romford, and the attempted murder of his father. The pair also face an alternative charge of wounding with intent.

Roome, also known as Aaron, and Hinds, nicknamed Ghost, deny all the charges.

A third defendant, Kevin Malamba, 20, of Rodney Road, Southwark has previously admitted perverting the course of justice.

Prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC told the jury that the defendants had gone to Gibbfield Close that day to look for two other brothers - Carter and Latham Jordan - with whom Roome was involved in an ongoing dispute.

He said: “As it turned out, their trip to Gibbfield Close resulted in a violent confrontation, not with the Jordans but with a different pair of brothers, Ricky and Perry Hayden and their father Paul.

“It appears that confrontation came about because the Haydens believed that Tommy Roome and Tarrell Hinds had designs on Perry Hayden’s moped which was parked directly outside the front door of the Haydens’ home address.

“The Haydens rushed outside to confront the men on the moped.”

He added: “Acting together, the first two defendants attacked the Haydens with the knives.

“In the course of the violence that ensued, Ricky Hayden received a number of wounds, including a deep stab wound to the left thigh which damaged the major blood vessels in the leg.

“This caused profound bleeding from which his body was unable to recover and he died in the early hours of the following day.”

The trial continues.
