Walnut Creek police investigators announced Friday that a security guard at a local construction site attacked and killed a colleague with a metal pole Thursday evening.
Police identified the suspect as Hakim Madjour, 34, of Concord, and said that at
approximately 6:52 p.m. Thursday Madjour “violently and unexpectedly attacked the victim” – inflicting life-threatening wounds to the head.
Detectives said Madjour and 60-year-old Harry Swayne III of San Pablo knew each other and were both working as security guards at the construction site. Arriving officers and medical personnel worked to save Swayne, but said he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said Madjour was taken into custody at the scene and the suspected murder weapon, a long metal pole, was taken into evidence.
Madjour was arrested for murder and transported to the John Muir Medical Center where he was treated for minor injuries. It was not revealed how he sustained those injuries. Madjour was ultimately transported to the Martinez Detention Facility where he was booked and is currently being held on $1,000,000 bail.
Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call Walnut Creek Police Department Detective Sergeant Andy Brown at 925-256-3553.
