Before moving to Birmingham, Masood was registered at living at an address in West Ham.
A neighbour who asked not to be named claimed he had lived in the area for 20 years and “belongs to a mosque on Leyton High Road”.
Abdul Abdul, a member of the Al-Tawhid mosque, told the Telegraph: “We condemn this attack. A true Muslim would never do this. He's not one of us, he's not a representative of us.”
The 52-year-old grew up in a £300,000 house in the seaside town of Rye, East Sussex and had his first conviction for criminal damage back in November 1983, aged 19.
Masood’s last conviction was in 2003, where he stabbed a 22-year-old in the face on the driveway of a nursing home in Eastbourne, according to Eastbourne Gazette. The victim needed cosmetic surgery following the savage attack.
He has also been charged with GBH, wounding with intent and possessing an offensive weapon.
