Clapham Common stabbing: Man in his 40s stabbed to death outside Tube station 'after car crash'
A man in his 40s has been stabbed to death in broad daylight outside of a Tube station “following a car crash”.
Police and the London Ambulance Service raced to the scene in Clapham Park Road, just outside of Clapham Common station, at about 2.30pm after receiving reports of a stabbing.
Paramedics battled to save the man, but he was pronounced dead shortly after they arrived.
The stabbing is the third violent death in three days in the capital, after a teenager was shot in West Norwood on Wednesday and a man was knifed in Regent’s Park on Thursday.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: “A man aged in his 40s was found suffering from stab wounds. Despite the efforts of paramedics he sadly died at the scene.
“The victim’s next of kin have not yet been informed.
“At this early stage there have been no arrests.The Homicide and Major Crime Command are aware. A crime scene is in place.”
A witness told the Standard they heard a “crash” before the man stumbled into the road.
They said: “I heard a crash and I walked towards the noise and saw a car had hit into the traffic pole, but I don’t know what happened.
“The passenger walked into the road and the ambulance came and they tried to do CPR [on the man] and the driver was sat in the seat”.
The Met said they are working to establish the circumstances of what happened.
