Charles Sherrard QC, defending, asked: "At any time did you have on you a weapon?"

The defendant replied: "No, no, I don't carry weapons."

Ong-a-Kwie said he and the youth walked up to Jodie, 17, and her friends in the play area, thinking they might be his customers.

Explaining what happened next, he told the packed courtroom: "As we walked through the gate (the boy) was on my left. We walked up to the group. I did not see what happened.

"I looked to my left, something caught my eye. I saw (the boy) jump over the railings and fall on his face."

Ong-a-Kwie told jurors he was unaware of what happened before he started running.

"I saw him running, so I started running," he said.

He said it all happened in a matter of seconds and he did not see a weapon.

He continued: "I jumped in the passenger side first. I remember (the boy) jumped in the back. He said: 'Go go go'. He said: 'I just stabbed someone'.

"I asked him who and he said he thought it was Tash. I heard him talking about him before.

"I said 'what do you mean, you thought it was Tash?' He said 'nah'.

"I said 'who did you stab then?' and he said 'I don't know, I don't know'."

After Petrovic dropped them off, Ong-a-Kwie said he talked to the boy again to find out what had happened, but the responses were unclear.

Ong-a-Kwie said: "I asked him what damage was done. He said 'I don't know'.

"I said 'why did you stab?' He said: 'I don't know'."

Ong-a-Kwie then denied threatening Petrovic's mother in the wake of Jodie's death, telling jurors: "I'm not like that. I did go to the house looking for him but I did not threaten him."

When asked if he had any idea what was going to happen in Amy's Park on the night of Jodie's death, he said: "No, no, not at all."

Ong-a-Kwie, Petrovic, 20, and two youths aged 16 and 17 who cannot be identified, from east London, have denied murder.

The trial continues.
