Freda Odame, 30, a supermarket worker who lives a few doors from the house where the woman was found beheaded, said she looked out of her window and saw the man wielding a machete with a “crazed look” in his eyes.
She said: “He was waving a huge machete around like a madman. He was shouting stuff. It didn’t make sense, it was like he was speaking in tongues.
“His eyes had a fury in them, lots of anger and hate. He was shouting and screaming, thrashing around.
“It was terrifying. I shut the curtains and sat there in fear. Then police banged on my doors shouting for people to come out.”
