Man dies after stabbing outside Parsons Green Tube station in London
A 20-year-old man has died after being stabbed in London in a brutal knife attack.
Two others were injured in the stabbing outside Parsons Green Tube station on Monday night.
The victim died at the scene after being stabbed outside the Tube station in west London.
Police were called at 7.37pm on Monday to reports of an incident outside the London Underground station, where 30 people were injured in a terror attack last month.
The attack took place near the Côte Brasserie restaurant in Parsons Green Lane.
One witness, who did not want to be named, told the Evening Standard that members of the victim’s family arrived on the scene to help him before he died.
He said: ‘I thought he had just punched him. I didn’t realise the man had been stabbed until I heard him shouting out “please help me”.’
