Leyton stabbing ‘followed clash at residential address’

0 1

Police believe the latest fatal stabbing in London followed an argument between two men.

The victim, in his 20s, was found in the street with multiple knife wounds on Wednesday afternoon in Leyton, east London.


Police believe it followed a clash that started in a nearby residential address. The victim then staggered into the street where he collapsed.

Detectives believe the victim and perpetrator knew each other and that the killing was not gang related.

It is the 21st homicide in the capital this year. By this time last year, there had been 29 homicides, according to the Metropolitan police.

Paramedics, including those from the air ambulance, tried to save the man’s life. But he died at 5.10pm on Wednesday, shortly after the attack.

Police said they were called to North Birkbeck Road, E11, just before 4.30pm on Wednesday. A postmortem will be carried out.

The stabbing is being investigated by the Met’s homicide and major crime command, which urged any witnesses to come forward.
