Teenager stabbed in face on Pimlico estate
A teenager has survived a stabbing attack on an estate close to where 16-year-old Hani Abou El Kheir was murdered in a brutal sword and knife attack in January, police have revealed.
The boy, also 16, was stabbed multiple times in the head, face and body on Easter Sunday in Tachbrook Street on Pimlico's Tachbrook Estate.
He was found a short time after bleeding heavily at a bus stop on Vauxhall Bridge Road. He received first aid from police officers at the scene and was rushed to hospital. He has now been discharged.
Police said the boy had been “very lucky”.
“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,” said DC Will Richards of the Westminster Major Crime Unit.
“This appears to have been a vicious and sustained attack on a young man who was unable to defend himself.”
Police are now appealing for witnesses. The attack happened in a residential block near a church and investigators believe many people may have been in the area.
Police said they were keeping an open mind as to any motive for the attack.
Hani Abou El Kheir was attacked and killed on nearby Lupus Street on 27 January. Police believe at least 10 people may have been involved. A 19-year-old man, Ahmed Mikhaimar, of Vauxhall Bridge Road, has been charged with his murder and will appear at the Old Bailey for a plea and case management hearing on 26 April.
Police did not suggest any link between the murder and the Easter Sunday attack.
