Lawless London: youngster knifed to death near school gates

A 15-year-old youngster was brutally knifed to death this morning, just outside of a west London secondary school.

London cops were called to the incident near Global Academy on Blyth Road in Hayes at 8:30am, and found the young lad with multiple stab wounds. Emergency health workers rushed to give help and attempted to save the teen, but their efforts were unsuccessful and he died at the scene.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that they have detained one suspect, and say a post mortem will be held in due course.

It’s the second brutal stabbing of a teenager in the capital in less than 24 hours, with a youngster also being killed in the streets of Streatham yesterday afternoon shortly after 4pm.

The 17-year-old was chased by an armed gang of up to ten people before being cornered at a post office and stabbed in the chest.

“I saw the gang brandishing machetes and other knives” said one witness. “They were chasing a boy, they looked like they were hunting him down. Postal workers came out and were fighting to save his life.”

Another member of the public described the scene as “vicious”.

The slew of knifings come after a week of terrifying crime that gripped the city following the spring bank holiday last Monday. On that sunny day, a youngster found himself stabbed to death in broad daylight in a London park while members of the public tried to enjoy a day off work.

A number of other wild scenes were caught on camera throughout that week, including a fight involving huge machete-like blades in Hyde Park, a knife fight on the streets of Greenwich, a Tower Hamlets gunpoint carjacking, a mass brawl in a public park that enveloped cops, and local police being swarmed by a mob in Brixton when they came to investigate a brutal shooting – with riot cops eventually being called to the scene to restore order.
