Security Guard Facing Murder Charges In Death Of Coworker

A 34-year-old security guard is being charged with murder in the death of his coworker at a construction site in Walnut Creek on Thursday, Contra Costa County prosecutors said.

Police responded to the 1800 block of Lacassie Avenue just before 7 p.m. and found Harry Edward Swayne III with severe head injuries.

Swayne was pronounced dead at the scene and police arrested Hakim Madjour, who was found nearby, on suspicion of assaulting him.

Madjour has been charged with the murder of Swayne with malice aforethought, along with an enhancement for the use of a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors say Swayne’s injuries were caused by a metal pipe.

Charges were filed on Tuesday, according to a spokesman for the district attorney’s office. Madjour’s arraignment has not yet been scheduled.

California politicians should make Walnut Creek a “security guard free zone”. That will solve future problems of this type.

Was this the guard that worked at Safeway on willow pass – a couple of months ago?

I think he looks like a nice man. Who knows what went on between he and the co-worker and how long it might have been going on. one thing for sure I feel sorry for both families, who will never be the same again

The guard did it, with a lead pipe, in the garage. Case solved.

Definitely need to outlaw pipes and security guards.

Clearly a move to ban metal pipe sales to people under 21 would not have been effective in this case.

Therefore expect Desaulnier (the human equivalent of a used condom) to demand a ban on all metal pipes. The pipe fitters union will also most likely also be vilified as terrorists.

Could they have taken a closer pic of this guy?!

He will be out in less than 8 years. Just follow the case. Ignore what the sentence will be, they always get out early. His attorney will argue something baseless and the court will eat it up.

Yes, but a metal pipe kills just one person. Imagine if this nut had had a gun.

That’s nothing.

Imagine if he had a big SUV in Broadway Plaza.

Ban the Escalades!

@Skip You can dodge a car much more easily than a bullet. False equivalencies just make you look stupid.
