Two murdered in separate attacks in London
2nd June 2014

Tributes have been paid to the 18-year-old man who was found stabbed to death in south-east London on Saturday.

The victim was stabbed to death after a fight broke out between two gangs in Sydenham. Another 17-year-old was also taken to the hospital with a stab wound. He was later taken to hospital and is now in stable condition, according to the police.

Friends of the 18-year-old victim have called him a popular man who was liked by everyone.

Four boys between the ages of 13 and 17 have been arrested in connection with the incident and a murder investigation has been launched. 

Detective Chief Inspector Russell Taylor of the Met’s homicide unit said: “A number of youths gathered in Wells Park Road before a fight broke out. Many people would have witnessed the attack as well as the aftermath.

“I would urge those people to contact officers so that we can piece together the events that lead up to this murder.”


If you have information, call police on 0208 721 4868 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
