London cops have arrested seven men after an 18-year-old youngster was stabbed to death in a busy London park during yesterday’s bank holiday.
Police rushed to Montrose Park in Barnet at 5.54pm following reports of a brawl. An air ambulance was later called to the scene after a man was found stabbed, but he was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.
Appealing for information on social media yesterday evening, the Metropolitan Police said: “We’re investigating after an 18yo was fatally stabbed in Montrose Park, Barnet this evening. Seven males have been arrested.
“Call 101 if you witnessed the incident & have info, pics and video that could help us investigate – ref CAD 5436/31 May.”
“Every day there’s a stabbing, what is this country coming to” asked one social media user, while others called on Labour’s London Mayor Sadiq Khan to take action on the growing epidemic of crime in the capital.
“Come on Sadiq Khan do something about this. This should be one of your main priorities” demanded one Twitter user.
The stabbing comes just days after a brutal Thursday night in the capital, which saw Metropolitan Police launch three murder probes in a stretch of just seven hours, as victims were stabbed, shot, and beaten to death by depraved London criminals.
And it comes just one day after a 14-year-old was stabbed to death in Labour-run Birmingham, with cops in the Midlands now hunting down seven attackers linked to the slaying.
“This is a shocking and senseless tragedy. Another young life has been taken far too soon” said Detective Inspector Ranj Sangha of the Birmingham slaying.
“We have officers with the boy’s family who are facing the cruellest of news this evening. My heart goes out to them.
“We will be leaving no stone unturned in our hunt for the callous individuals responsible for this, or for anyone harbouring them, knowing what they have done.”
