Two teenagers have been charged with the murder of an 18-year-old who was stabbed to death in London during a weekend which saw three men killed in separate attacks in less than 24 hours.

A 17-year-old from Merton, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and Mohammed Nadir Dafallah, 18, from Wandsworth, were charged on Sunday.

They will both appear in custody at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Emergency services were called to Deeside Road in Wandsworth, south-west London, on Friday afternoon where the male victim was found stabbed.

The 18-year-old man died at the scene and is yet to be formally identified, with a post-mortem examination due to be held.

In a second incident in a different part of London just minutes later, a 19-year-old man was fatally shot in Plumstead.

On Saturday afternoon a man in his 30s was stabbed to death in Tower Hamlets, east London, and three men were also stabbed in a separate attack in Clapham, south-west London.

Mr Khan said he was “sickened” following the deaths of the two teenage boys.
