Partner’s heartbreaking tribute to ‘amazing’ dad-of-3, 40, ‘stabbed to death by neighbour in row over noisy motorbikes'
A DAD-of-three who was stabbed to death over an alleged row with a neighbour over noisy motorbikes has been described as “amazing” by his wife.
Dean Allsop, 41, died from a stab wound to the chest last week outside his home in Thorpe St Andrew near Norwich, Norfolk.
His partner Louise Newell, 40, was also stabbed along with a woman in her 50s.
Neighbour James Crosbie, 47, has been charged with the murder of Mr Allsop.
Ms Newell paid tribute to her husband in a statement released by Norfolk Police, saying: "Dean was my heartbeat, my soulmate, my best friend and the love of my life.
“He was an amazing father to Millie, Mikey and Jacob and he has been cruelly taken away from us.
"Our lives have been destroyed and our family will never be the same again.
"Dean had such a caring nature and would do anything for those who loved him.”
Mr Allsop’s mother Jill added that their family has lost a "diamond" and that she is "truly heartbroken".
His father Vic said: "Dean was a wonderful son, I am very proud of him and his family.
"He will be a massive loss to all who knew him.”
Local residents said the stabbing happened after Mr Allsop and his teenage son started up their motorbikes to go out for a ride, prompting a neighbour to complain about the noise.
Mr Allsop was declared dead at the scene while the others who injured were left with what police described as serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Ms Newell was later released from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
Mr Crosbie was taken under police guard to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
He was returned to Norfolk last Friday and quizzed before being charged on Saturday with two counts of causing grievous bodily harm to two women who were stabbed and three counts of possessing an offensive weapon.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm to Mr Crosbie and was later re-arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
A Norfolk Police statement said he was questioned at the Police Investigation Centre in Great Yarmouth and had “been released under investigation while enquiries continue”.
Crosbie had his arm in a sling and seemed to have a cut to the top of his head when he appeared before Norwich magistrates on Monday.
He was remanded in custody at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday, pending a plea and directions hearing on July 16, and a potential trial to begin on December 6.
Norfolk Police said emergency services including armed officers were called to Primrose Crescent at 7.35pm last Wednesday “following reports of a disturbance involving a number of people”.
An earlier Norfolk Police statement said: “Police are exploring the relevance of previous contact concerning a neighbourhood dispute.
“This relates to an incident which happened in 2018. As standard procedure in these circumstances, the matter has been referred to the Independent Office of Police Conduct.”
His friend Andrew Russen described him as “a full-time dad” who looked after his three children while his partner worked.
He added: “He was a top bloke. Everyone said the same. He was a proper family man.
"This just shouldn’t have happened.”
