Minicab driver knifed to death ‘by passengers’ gasped “four people” in desperate last 999 call


A MINICAB driver gasped "four people" as he lay dying after being knifed to death by a group of teens in his car, a court heard today.

Gabriel Bringye, 37, managed to get the final words out in a desperate 999 call on February 17 in Tottenham, North London.

He was allegedly stabbed to deaths by teenage passengers in an "ambush" robbery.

The driver was discovered dead in his cab outside a school.

Two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old have now been charged with murder and detained in youth detention accommodation.

The court was told one of the 15-year-olds is also accused of grabbing a mobile phone in the robbery of Thais Gomes De Arauja at Hendon tube station on the same night.

Prosecutor Paul Jarvis told the Old Bailey: "It looks very much like an ambush robbery.

"The other defendant joined by leaving his accommodation at a critical moment, participated and fled when injured."

The three youths will next appear at the Old Bailey on May 12 to enter pleas.

Gabriel had been in the UK for 13 years and had worked as a minicab driver in London since 2015. 

He was planning to get married to fiancee Mara later this year, a pal said.

They added: "The wedding plans had been put on hold due to Covid but Gabriel was hopeful him and Mara could marry this year.

"It's an awful tragedy. He was the nicest, most gentle human being you could meet. He wouldn't harm a fly.

"We are all in shock."
