The Metropolitan Police have confirmed a 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault after a woman in her 40s was stabbed to death
Video not available
A terrifying video has emerged that appears to show a boy in his school uniform stabbing a woman to death while onlookers scream on their way home from school.
The video shows the apparent knife attack, which took place in front of a crowd as the woman lay helpless.
A scuffle appears to have broken out between the woman and the schoolboy in Croydon, south London, yesterday afternoon. My London reported it.
Just when it seems passers-by have separated the two, the woman appears to slap the boy in the face.
Video then appears to show her being pushed by another student before the first allegedly pulls a blade and lunges at the woman.
He appears to lash out at her before being dragged away and tied against a wall.
The video also appears to show two girls throwing drinks at the woman and has been edited to cut out the obvious stabbing but still shows the confrontation before and after the alleged attack.
The Met Police have confirmed a 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault (GBH) after a woman in her 40s was stabbed to death.
Police were called to the Grosvenor Road scene at 4.35pm yesterday after reports of a “dispute” between a woman and a group of children.
Paramedics from Police and London Ambulance were called to the scene where they found a woman in her 40s suffering from a stab wound.
Her injury was not classified as life-threatening. The boy remains in custody and the investigation is ongoing.
Today (Wednesday), Detective Sergeant Danielle Power said: “We understand the concern that will spread throughout our communities regarding this horrifically violent incident and would like to reassure parents and local residents that increased high visibility patrols will be in place at the end of the school day to reassure students, their parents and the wider community. We continue to work closely with the local school and support the victim.”
A man who works at the shop opposite the incident told MyLondon: “It feels like it’s normal but people who pull out a knife are cowards.
“I thought the kids were having a water fight because I saw all the liquid being thrown and then I saw the crowd disperse. Then I saw a woman lying on the ground.”
Anyone who witnessed this incident but has not yet spoken to police should call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote 5441/10May.
