A young man has been charged with murder after another youngster was knifed to death in a quiet residential street.
Ayodeji Habeeb Azeez, 22, was repeatedly stabbed in broad daylight in another shocking act of violence in ‘Lawless London.’
Witnesses claim a group of up to five people approached him before somebody knifed him ‘multiple times’.
Despite their best efforts, paramedics could not save the victim – who was airlifted to hospital.
Chase Grey, 23, of South Norwood, south east London, was charged with murder and is set to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today.
He is one of four people arrested over the stabbing, including a 16-year-old girl, who has been bailed pending further enquiries.

A post-mortem examination which took place at Princess Royal Hospital Mortuary on Tuesday, 6 November gave his cause of death as multiple stab wounds.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
