There had been two other alleged serious incidents in the last two weeks involving Derek Reddin and another man.
The CCTV footage doesn't clearly show the exact moment that Derek Reddin was stabbed but it does feature the frenzy that occurs after.
They added: "You cannot see the actual stabbing incident. You can just see the victim and another man running across the road.
"The spot of the stabbing is blocked by leaves on trees so you can just see the groups coming together."
The homeowner describes how the man who was with the victim tried to get him into a car at around 11:50pm following the incident but is unsuccessful.
They continued: "They try to get the victim into some car but he is unable to move him so he stops trying.
"I assume that he then rings the ambulance because about 10 minutes after this they arrive."
Derek Reddin was previously given a three-month sentence in 2015 for assaulting a Garda who tried to arrest him in relation to another incident.
Mr Reddin asked gardai to come back later as he did not want his two children to see him get arrested.
When they refused he violently resisted arrest before spitting at, lashing out at and even scratching the face of a garda.
Derek's first cousin, Ellen Reddin described his charity work with local group, You're Not Alone.
"He was very generous and often helped out the charity with soup runs and events."
"He was a happy-go-lucky man. He hated people being down and always tried his best to cheer them up.
"We were very close when we were younger but then I moved to England but we've reconnected again in the last year.
"Derek was actually arranging for all the cousins to come together at Christmas for a reunion."
You're Not Alone are holding an event for Derek on Friday 25 October at Bank of Ireland at College Green at 7:30pm releasing balloons into the sky to honour his memory.
Residents of Loughlinstown said that the killing was completely out of the norm for what is normally a "quiet and family-filled area".
One neighbour said: "The community is rocked by the news. This is a lovely peaceful area and is a genuine shock to people."
A second added: "You would be worried about children going out at night around here after this. I've been here for 36 years and nothing like this has ever happened before. It's sad to see it happen on your doorstep.
Fine Gael's Jennifer Carroll MacNeil has said the community is still in shock since the news broke.
The local councillor told Dublin Live: "It's a very very peaceful area, Loughlinstown and Ballybrack are really established, stable, peaceful communities and it's a huge shock for locals.
"Where it happened was on a main road at the entrance to Loughlinstown Drive from Wyattville.
"It's very sad for the family and locals are reeling. We're all shocked and trying to piece it together."
A garda spokesperson said: "A man in his 30s has died following a fatal stabbing incident in Loughlinstown, Co Dublin.
"Shortly after midnight Gardaí were called to the scene of an incident on Loughlinstown Drive, were a man in his 30s was discovered with apparent stab wounds.
"Members of the Armed Support Unit, local Garda units and Emergency Services attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
"Two men, also in their 30s, have since been arrested by investigating Gardaí and are currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Shankill Garda Station.
"The body of the deceased man remains at the scene which is currently preserved for technical and forensic examination.
"The office of the State Pathologist has been notified and an incident room has been established Shankill Garda Station."
