Mar­cios Dos San­tos, 20, and a friend spent 20 min­utes with one of the girls be­fore he and Jordean Thomas, 19, re­turned armed with knives, it was said.

The pair then fa­tally stabbed 27-year-old Brazil­ian se­cu­rity guard Car­los Oliv­e­ria (above) in the heart, the Old Bai­ley was told.

A sec­ond se­cu­rity guard, Al­ba­nian Ermel Lala, is also said to have been in­jured by the two at­tack­ers as they tried to grab the night’s £2,000 tak­ings, which were hid­den be­hind a cush­ion in a brown en­ve­lope.

CCTV shows the pair meet­ing up with two oth­ers in a nearby park shortly af­ter­wards, while one of the knives was found near a pri­mary School, ju­rors heard.
