Man stabbed to death in Hackney named as police appeal for witnesses to ‘argument’ | UK News

A man stabbed to death on Boxing Day in east London has been named as Michael John Murphy.

Police have launched an investigation into the murder in Hackney, and arrested four people, who were later released with no further action being taken.

They were called to Cranwood Street at 3.10am on 26 December, where the 49-year-old died of his injuries. His next of kin has been informed and a formal identification is taking place.

The Metropolitan Police is now appealing for witnesses to come forward, after initial inquiries “confirmed there was an argument in the street” before Mr Murphy was stabbed.

Up to ten people may have been involved, and the force says residents may have overheard what happened.

Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command said: “We are continuing to piece together the events that led to Michael sustaining his injuries and would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything in the Cranwood Street area on Boxing Day morning to come forward.”

Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway, who is responsible for policing in Hackney and Tower Hamlets, said: “Our thoughts are with Michael’s family at this unimaginably difficult time. That this tragedy occurred over the Christmas period will be shocking to many and I reiterate DCI Allen’s appeal for witnesses who were in the area to come forward.

“Specialist detectives, supported by local officers from Hackney, have been at the scene since this incident, carrying out vital evidence-gathering work.

“Their presence has caused disruption to residents in the area and I would like to thank everyone for their patience and support while this work is carried out.”

Met Police defends officers after man tasered and dogs shot dead in front of witnesses | UK News

The Metropolitan Police has defended its officers after a suspect was tasered and two dogs were shot in front of shocked witnesses.

Footage on social media showed officers pursuing a man holding the two dogs on a lead along a canal in Limehouse, east London on Sunday.

The situation then appeared to become heated, with witnesses heard screaming, as the man was tasered to the ground and the animals were shot dead.

Officers had arrived at the scene after receiving a report of a woman being attacked by a dog.

In a statement, the force said: “Police were called just after 5pm on Sunday May 7 to a woman being attacked by a dog in Commercial Road, E14.

“Officers attended the location where the aggressive behaviour of two dogs was of considerable concern and posed a significant threat to them.

“A man was arrested in connection with the incident for having a dog dangerously out of control and assault offences. He has been taken into police custody.

Boy, 15, stabbed to death as witnesses describe ‘gang of 70 youths’ | UK News

A teenage boy has died after being stabbed in north London, with police appealing to witnesses who may have seen the attack.

Officers were called to Highbury Fields, Islington, just before 9pm on Thursday, the Metropolitan Police said.

A 15-year-old was treated at the scene, but he died a short time later in hospital.

His identity has not been confirmed, although police said his next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

There have been no arrests and inquiries into the circumstances are continuing, Scotland Yard said as it launched a murder investigation, led by Detective Chief Inspector Joanna Yorke.

She said: “My team is working hard to piece together the schedule of events that led to this tragic loss of a young life, but we still need information from people who saw what happened.

“Were you there? Did you capture any footage? Do you know who was responsible for the attack on the victim?

“Even if your information seems insignificant, please do the right thing and share what you know. If you don’t want to speak directly to police Crimestoppers, they won’t even ask you for your name.

“A young life has been brutally ended and a family is struggling to come to terms with their loss – if you can help please don’t hesitate.”

Local MP Jeremy Corbyn said: “Devastating news of the fatal stabbing of a teenager in Highbury Fields yesterday. My thoughts are with their family at this incredibly difficult time.”

Gang of ‘around 70 youths’ spotted at the scene

The cordon surrounding Highbury Fields, which covers the whole park, will be in place for “at least the rest of the day” and possibly for a couple of days, police at the scene said.

Albina, who lives locally and wished to be known only by her first name, said her daughter witnessed a gang of “around 70” youths approaching the park approximately an hour before the stabbing.

She said her daughter, a teacher, was walking with her 15-year-old son at about 7.45pm when she saw the group, which she guessed included children as young as 15.

Kimberley Patton-Bragg and Michael Bragg, visiting London from New Orleans, said they witnessed a police presence as a group of between 15 and 20 young people became “heated” at about 7pm.

Ms Patton-Bragg said: “Kids – it was definitely kids – were being rambunctious, and it was definitely getting heated.”

The couple were sitting inside their AirBnB, which faces on to the park, with the windows open when they saw the situation develop.

Mr Bragg said: “You could feel it building, at some point the groups became larger.”
