Teenager stabbed in the face on Pimlico estate

The ‘Evening Standard’ reports;

“A teenager survived a stab attack on an estate close to where 16-year-old Hani Abou El Kheir was murdered, police have revealed.
Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 16-year-old boy was stabbed at around 7pm on Easter Sunday in Tachbrook Street on Pimlico’s Tachbrook Estate.

He was found a short time afterwards bleeding heavily at a bus stop in Vauxhall Bridge Road and was treated in hospital for stab wounds to his head, face and upper body. He has since been discharged.

DC Will Richards of the Westminster Major Crime Unit said: “This appears to have been a vicious and sustained attack on a young man who was unable to defend himself.

“He has received multiple stab wounds to the head, face, upper body and back and is very lucky not to have been more seriously injured.

“This happened within a residential block near to a church on an Easter Sunday afternoon. I believe that a lot of people will have been at home or in the area at the time and I would encourage anyone who noticed any suspicious behaviour in the areas surrounding the estate on 31 March to contact me, or call Crimestoppers.”

A 14-year-old boy from south east London was arrested on April 5 in connection with the incident and has been bailed until May 30 pending further inquiries.

Witnesses are being urged to contact DC Will Richards on 020 7321 8257 quoting crime reference number 6516178/13, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

On February 27 police were called to the Tachbrook Estate after reports of a firearm having been discharged. Nobody was hurt and no bullets hit any buildings.”
