A woman and a man have been arrested after they allegedly conspired to kill her husband. 

The victim was Parwiz Assar, 51. Parwiz was found stabbed to death on October 8 at 10:21 p.m. 

Officers responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon at Lance Way and Tucker Street, where they found Assar unresponsive and suffering from stab wounds. 

Police said medical personnel pronounced him dead at the scene. 

Extensive investigations revealed two suspects: 

  • Samim Azizi, 21, of Washington
  • Razma Mohammad-Ibrahim, 35, of Hayward.

On October 31, police arrested Azizi in Seattle, Washington. He is held without bail at King County Jail and awaiting extradition to California.

Mohammad-Ibrahim was arrested on November 15 in Hayward and is being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail in Alameda County. 

According to police, she was married to the victim for around 15 years and the couple had been experiencing marital problems. 

Mohammad-Ibrahim and Azizi met in December 2022 and were intimately involved. Investigators believed the two conspired to kill the victim so they could be together and have custody of her children and family assets. 

Assar and Mohammad-Ibrahim have minor children who are in the custody of the family, police said.

“I would like to take a moment to recognize the outstanding investigative work that led to the arrests in this case,” said Hayward PD Acting Chief Bryan Matthews.

The investigation into the case is still active, according to police.
