Following a horrifying weekend of violence, three individuals are dead and another is hurt. In the 16 hours of attacks in the city, it was also claimed that a lady was raped in a park in north London, a man was stabbed in the head, and another man was shot.
After a confrontation on Richmond Bridge yesterday, a guy in his 30s passed away in the hospital, prompting the opening of a murder investigation (November 26). In another incident, two teens were fatally stabbed in south-east London, and murder investigations have been opened.
In Bethnal Green last night, a 40-year-old man was also stabbed in the skull, but his wounds are not thought to be life-threatening or significantly altering. In Highbury Fields, there were reports of rape, and police responded.
A male who knows the accused victim has been taken into custody. In the early hours of this morning, a man was shot in Brixton.
After being attacked yesterday in South West London, a man has passed away. Just before 4 am, emergency services responded to reports of a fight at Richmond Bridge. They discovered a man in his 30s who had “severe injuries” there.
He was brought to the hospital, where he eventually passed away from his wounds. A murder investigation has been started, and the next of kin have been notified and are receiving help. There have been no detentions.
