A father has spoken of his fear for his family after a man was killed in a triple stabbing. 

Two men were found injured in Wellesley Road, Harrow, just before 7.15pm yesterday (August 9).

Despite the efforts of emergency services, one of the men was pronounced dead.

Police enquiries are ongoing to identify him and notify his next of kin.

The other man was taken to hospital for further treatment where his condition is currently unknown.

A third man was found nearby with stab wounds a short time later. He was taken to hospital where his condition has been assessed as not life-threatening.

Kugal, a father who lives near Wellesley Road, said he is now afraid to leave his children alone following the incident.

He explained: “Of course, I feel worried because I have children and they always go around these places, so I’m afraid to leave them alone.

"It’s a very busy road, there are schools although obviously it’s the holidays, and there’s the shopping centre.

"I’m always using this road. There’s a lot of people going to the park - a lot of strangers - so we don’t know what’s happening to this area now.

“I’m very worried why it’s happened, it’s not really the first time because something happened down the road earlier this year.

"There’s something happening, it’s been happening frequently. But this one was major."

A woman, who asked to be kept anonymous, said the stabbing was “surprising”.

She explained: "It is unexpected this is a quiet residential road, and you don’t hear of this happening here.

“I wouldn’t say it’s regular anywhere - so I was surprised to hear of it here.”

She added that it is “upsetting” for anyone’s life to be taken but that "we have to power on”.

Two males have been arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into police custody.

A crime scene has been put in place and police say enquiries continue.

Superintendent Matt Cray, from the local policing team in north-west London, said: "This is a devastating incident and my thoughts are with the family of the man who was killed.

"We remain in the early stages of our investigation, however I am confident there is no wider risk to the community in Harrow.

"Officers will remain in the area over the coming days to respond to any concerns you may have."

Any witnesses, or anyone with any information, is asked to call police on 101, quoting CAD 6726/09Aug.
