Teenager critical after South Harrow stabbing

police_jacketDetectives are appealing for witnesses and information after a teenager was critically injured in a stabbing in Harrow.

On Friday, 18 November, police were called at approximately 17:10hrs to reports of a man stabbed near to South Harrow Underground Station, outside Kebabish takeaway on Northolt Road, Harrow.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 19-year-old man (victim 1) suffering a stab wound. He was taken to a central London hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

A 17-year-old male (victim 2) also sustained a minor laceration to his abdomen during the incident. He was taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged.

No arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing.

    I won’t be holding my breath waiting for “Black Lives Matter” to comment as they won’t be able to scream “racism “. Hope the lad recovers and identifies these lawless swaggering scumbags so that they can be sent down. Sadly some stupid liberal right-on judge and tax funded ambulance chaser will see them sent to a cushy “prison” with TV, playstation and an army of do-gooders to make excuses for them, the victims and families forever looking over their shoulders fearful of reprisals. Meanwhile our PC “police” will walk on eggshells, terrified of being accused of “institutional racism” and will instead launch a “crackdown” on “hate speech” on Twitter and Facebook, or on “speeding” to give the illusion of activity. The Labour Council will say a few pout less platitudes but will do nothing to jeopardise their postal votes in the area.

      Am so sorry to hear that the young lad has passed away, my thoughts and condolences go to his family and friends. It is a wicked world sometimes that we live in and this is just too tragic. Comments from Hilltop Watchman about racism are not helpful, and indeed should not have been mentioned in this case at all. Every life matters including black lives. RIP young man.
