A murder trial jury has heard how a teenager was chased down the street after a 22-year-old man was stabbed during an early hours confrontation last summer.
Golcar resident Billy Furey said he initially heard loud screaming coming from the street that night and when he looked out from his living room window he could see a group of men near a Peugeot car.
Mr Furey, of Elmfield Avenue, said there was another group of people in a garden and there was a lot of arguing.
He told Bradford Crown Court that it was hard to see what was happening, but he then heard Leah Owen shouting:”Sean’s been stabbed.”
Murder accused Jamal Buckle, 18, of Elmfield Avenue, Golcar, is alleged to have deliberately stabbed Sean Annandale during the incident last August and Mr Furey described the volatile and angry scenes following the stabbing.
He said Mr Annandale’s friend Vaughan Longmore was shouting aggressively and he later saw him smashing the window of a Peugeot car while Buckle was sitting in the passenger seat.
Mr Furey said Buckle got out of the vehicle through the driver’s door and was chased down the street.
He said there were quite a few people chasing the teenager and during cross-examination by Buckle’s barrister Mr Furey confirmed that the defendant had been saying that the stabbing was an accident.
“He sounded upset to you?” asked Jason Pitter QC.
“Very upset. Very scared.” replied Mr Furey.
After a stand-off in the street the crowd went back to assist Mr Annandale while Buckle returned to his flat, but about 10 minutes later he came out again and after getting into the Peugeot car he was driven away by another man.
Mr Furey said people were screaming and grabbing towels to help Mr Annandale and he confirmed that Buckle himself had been asking if an ambulance had been called.
Mr Furey described Buckle as a very calm, nice person whom he had seen “turn the other cheek” when a neighbour was behaving aggressively towards him.
Buckle has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
A second man Shervin Soltani, 23, of Hawthorne Way, Shelley, has denied assisting an offender by driving Buckle away from the scene that night.
The trial continues.
