A man has been charged following a double stabbing in Brentford, west London that left a young man dead and an 82-year-old woman in critical condition on Friday.

Norris Henry, 37 of Brook Road South, Brentford has been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Ali Abucar Ali and the attempted murder of an 82-year-old woman who were both stabbed in the incident, the Metropolitan Police said.

Henry is scheduled to appear before Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Monday, 15 November. Police were called to Albany Parade on the evening of Friday 12 November following reports of a double stabbing.

Ali Abucar Ali was pronounced dead at the scene, while the woman was taken to hospital and was reported to be in critical condition. She remains in a serious condition, but her injuries have been assessed as non-life threatening, the Met police updated.

Police said there is no evidence linking the stabbings to terrorism and no one else is being sought over the incident. Inquiries are now ongoing to establish if anyone involved was known to each other, the Metropolitan Police added.
