Delivery driver, 48, knifed to death as cops hunt suspect feared to have stabbed two other victims

POLICE are hunting an attacker who stabbed a dad to death and may have knifed two other victims.

Delivery driver Leon Street, 48, was fatally knifed in Neasden, North West London, on Monday night.

Leon, who lived locally with his fiancée, died from stab wounds to the chest, a post-mortem found.

Police are linking the fatal stabbing to an attack around ten minutes earlier that left a man in his 40s injured.

They have not ruled out Monday's attacks being connected to a stabbing around 9.50 am this morning in the same area.

Sunday's attack left a man in his 30s with knife injuries before he was rushed to hospital.


Following today's stabbing, a police spokesman said: "At this early stage, officers retain an open mind as to the motive for this incident but are aware of the proximity to two stabbings on 11 January.

"Detectives from the Met’s homicide team have been informed."

No arrests have yet been made, and the victim's condition is not yet known.

Monday's injured victim was rushed to hospital after being stabbed by a lone knifeman who ran away from the scene.

Detectives believe both Monday's attacks were committed by the same lone knifeman, but aren't releasing a description of the suspect at the moment.

No arrests have yet been made.

Cops were scrambled just after 9.30pm after reports of a man being stabbed.

Detective Chief Inspector Tom Williams urged people to come forward with information after the horrific double stabbing.

He said: "In particular, I want to hear from anyone who saw a man running in the Neasden Lane North area between 9pm and 10pm.

"And indeed from anyone who has seen a man hanging around the area in recent weeks.

“It is my belief that the suspect lives locally, and I am asking local people to get in touch if they know anyone who was acting suspiciously on Monday and in the subsequent days.

"For instance, do you know anyone who has been disposing of clothes or simply seeming agitated for no apparent reason."

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