Man, 20, charged with murder after delivery driver, 48, stabbed to death & two other knife attacks on same street


A 20-YEAR-OLD man will appear in court this morning after a delivery driver was stabbed to death and two other men attacked on the same street in North West London.

Amine Laouar has been charged with the murder of 48-year-old dad Leon Street, who was stabbed to death on January 11 in Neasden.

Laouar is also charged with grievous bodily harm with intent against a 47-year-old man who was stabbed around 10 minutes before the attack on Mr Street.

The defendant also faces a third charge of attempted murder of a 32-year-old man in Neasden Lane North on Sunday, January 17.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene on Neasden Lane North just after 9.30pm on January 11 but could not save Mr Street, who lived with his fiancée nearby.

Cops previously said they were keeping an open mind over the motive as none of the victims appeared to have been robbed, and the attacker was not believed to have said anything significant to them.

Laouar, of north west London, is set to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Tom Williams (Specialist Crime) has called for anyone with information to come forward.

"I want to hear from anyone who saw a man running or otherwise acting suspiciously in the Neasden Lane North area between 9pm and 10pm on January 11, or at around 9.50am on January 17," he said.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 6783/11JAN.
