Man stabbed to death on London street screamed ‘no don’t do this’ as gang launched knife attack


A MAN stabbed to death on a London street screamed “no don’t do this” as a gang launched a knife attack in a West London street in the early hours of this morning.

The victim was fatally stabbed at an estate close to Westbourne Park with cops called around 12.30am.

He was attacked by two males who sped off in a navy blue car, neighbours said today.

The victim pleaded with his attackers to stop and was seen trying to crawl to safety after he was knifed.

A large bloodstain inside the estate car park in Elmfield Way showed where the man collapsed.

One witness told the Sun Online: “I heard a lot of noise and then one of them, it must have been the boy, was shouting ‘No, no, no don’t do this.’

“Then they did whatever they did and then sped off in a car.

“I heard about four bangs. I just heard it out of the window.”

She said neighbours rushed out to help the injured male, who was lying on the floor.

She added: “I was in my room. I went to my window.

“They were working on him, everybody, even before the paramedics arrived.”

“Everyone was trying to do CPR.”

The victim was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1.06am.

Another neighbour, 28, who witnessed the attack from his bedroom window and called an ambulance, said: “I heard some noises. Him and some other kids. I stuck my head out of the window.

“He was jumped, he was kicked and punched.

“There were two teenagers. At first he was covering asking them to stop. After the guy did the motion there was bleeding. He just crawled towards the gate.”

Officers are in the process of informing next of kin. Formal identification awaits.

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

Homicide detectives from the Specialist Crime Command are investigating.

There have been no arrests.

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 quoting Cad reference 185/15Jul.
