Man claims 'creepy' Sabina Nessa killer 'tried to target him on gay dating app Grindr' before murdering nurse

A MAN claims he narrowly escaped the clutches of the man who killed Sabina Nessa after he tried to chat him up on a dating app.

The unnamed man said murderer Koci Selamaj contacted him on Grindr six years ago.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said Selemaj, 36, reached out from a blank profile in 2016.

He said he asked Selemaj to send over a photo – but when he did, he recognised him straight away as a man he passed on the way to work in Eastbourne, West Sussex.

He said: "He sent me a picture, and it was him – the man arrested for the girl’s murder.

"I recognised him straight away. I told him sorry but he wasn’t my type, and I blocked him.

"I don’t know if he is gay or bisexual, but it was 100 per cent him."

He said it was "scary" to think about how close he came to the future killer, adding: "Who knows what could have happened if we had met up. It’s not even worth thinking about."

Selemaj, a former Domino's delivery driver, pleaded guilty to battering Sabina, 28, to death just yards from her flat in Kidbrooke, South London.

The primary school teacher was ambushed in a "premeditated and predatory" attack that was "sadistic and sexually motivated".

Selamaj was remanded in custody to be sentenced on April 7.
