STAB CITY: Another man has been knifed to death in London - less than 24 hours after the last one


A MURDER investigation has been launched in Brent after a man suffered fatal stab wounds, just hours after police wished residents a safe weekend.

It came just hours after local Met Police officers wished residents a safe weekend after finding no weapons during a sweep of the road where it happened and surrounding areas.

Police were called to Harrow Road, Wembley, at 1.50am today (Sunday, 30 October) to reports of a stabbing.

Officers attended along with paramedics from London Ambulance Service (LAS).

A 21-year-old man was found with stab wounds. Despite the efforts of emergency services, he died a short time later.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Two men were arrested at the scene in connection with the incident. A 33-year-old man remains in custody, while a 25-year-old man has since been released without further action.

Homicide detectives from the Met's Specialist Crime Command have been informed and are leading the investigation.

A crime scene has been put in place.

Enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 878/30Oct.

To remain anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

On Saturday evening local officers (main image during the sweep) had tweeted: "Today your local ward officers partnered up with

@MPSAWQueensPark and @MPSMaidaVale to conduct patrols and numerous weapon sweeps across the Maida Vale, Harrow Road and Queens Park.

"Nothing to report back. We wish you an enjoyable and safe rest of your weekend."

The murder, the 88th homicide of the year in the capital, came less than 24 hours after another man was stabbed to death outside a restaurant in Waterloo.
