Mum watches son die after he’s chased and stabbed near his home

A man, 20, desperately tried to get away from his attackers but was eventually caught and stabbed to death.

Police found the victim and another man, 22, with stab injuries just before midnight at Ainsworth House, in South Hampstead, London. An eyewitness neighbour said the victim’s mother fainted when she saw her son covered in blood.

She told the Evening Standard: ‘He was losing so much blood, and there was another boy lying on the other side.’ Another witness said the man’s sister screamed ‘that’s my brother’ as he lay dying in the street.

Both victims were taken to hospital but the 20-year-old was pronounced dead just after 12.35am. He has not been named but police say his family are being supported by specialist officers. A post-mortem will be arranged soon.
The 22-year-old victim was not critically injured and remains in hospital in a ‘serious, but stable’ condition. 

Armed police arrested two suspects at gunpoint after pulling over a car in north London earlier today. 

The men, aged 20 and 23, were detained on suspicion of murder.

The incident is being linked to another stabbing yesterday in nearby West Kilburn. A man, 20, was found with a stab wound to the leg in Lancefield Street and was taken to hospital.

His condition is non-life threatening. Detective Chief Inspector Simon Stancombe said: ‘My team is working hard to establish the circumstances of this violent incident, and our thoughts and condolences are with the family of the man who died.

‘The two arrests were made following an armed stop of a blue, Audi A3 in the early hours of this morning in Shirland Road, West Kilburn.’ Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting CAD 10016/july25, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
