Brentford: Man arrested after fatal stabbing in London

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a fatal stabbing in west London.

The man in his 30s was detained after police were called to Albany Place in Brentford, where officers found another man believed to be in his 20s dead at the scene.

An 82-year-old woman had also been stabbed in the incident around 7.50pm on Friday. Her condition is described as serious but not life-threatening.

Police said there is no evidence linking the stabbings to terrorism and no one else is wanted in connection with the incident.

Investigations are now underway to determine if anyone involved was known to each other, Metropolitan Police said.

Detective Inspector Brain Howie said: “A number of roadblocks remain in place in and around Albany Parade, Albany Road and the surrounding area. Any locals who have information or concerns should speak to officers working at this location.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or interacted with the suspect near the scene but who has not yet spoken to police. Also anyone who may have footage, whether it is from doorbells, dashcams or mobile devices, are also urged to check the material and contact the police if there is anything relevant to our investigation. “
