A 15-year-old boy appeared in court today after being charged with the murder of another teenager who was fatally stabbed while walking to school.
Police named the victim Jalan Woods Bell, 15, following an incident in Hayes, western London, on Friday.
Officers were asked to report the fight on Bryce Road near the Global Academy (a university for students aged 14-19) just before 8:35 am.
Jalan was found in a puncture wound and died on the scene.
The Metropolitan Police Department said the post-mortem examination will take place on Sunday.
The indicted teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will appear in the Magistrates’ Court of Wilsden on Saturday, and his next appearance is expected to be updated soon.
Specialist Crime Command detectives continue to investigate the case.
A nearby teacher, Tia Rek-Williams, 21, said the incident was “traumatic.”
She said: “I didn’t see the first puncture wound, but I saw past the point where the boy was on the ground.
“They said,’Come on, wait for only 30 seconds and keep fighting,’ and, as they said, I saw his hand fall and close his eyes. It was very traumatic. “
Ms. Rek-Williams said the ambulance crew arrived about 30 seconds later and the boy was treated with a defibrillator.
She said about six people tried to help the boy while neighbors came out of the house and gathered on the road.
She added: “It happened in the middle of the day. I’m a 15 year old boy. There are a lot of cameras.
“It just shows that these people can’t stop doing these things.
“This happened literally in the middle, not in the back alleys, but in front of people’s homes. It’s just terrible.”
Another witness said, “I came out because I heard a scream and the police were already here.
“They were working on him first, but then an ambulance appeared.
“More police have begun to come and the ambulance has landed. It took a while.
“At that point, the police said,’Stop, turn back, everyone will come back.’ Then I think the people involved came first, then mom, and then dad.”
Keishisei Peter Gardner, police commander of Hillindon, said: “I am deeply saddened to hear the tragic loss of a child’s life due to the knife crime in Hillindon.
“The incident that killed a 15-year-old boy happened during school operations this morning.
“Families are devastated and the effects of this horrific event will resonate throughout our community.
“I myself, as a parent of a teenage boy, can’t imagine my family suffering. I offer my heartfelt condolences and support.”
