Kayjon Lublin (Suspects Arrested) Wiki – Kayjon Lublin (Suspects Arrested) Biography
Two more people were arrested after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed to death in east London.
The teenager, named Kayjon Lubin in reports, was found on Woodman Street near the Royal Docks in Newham, fatally injured shortly before 7pm Friday after witnesses said he was being chased ‘like a pack of dogs’ by a gang.
In connection with the incident, Metropolitan Police said they arrested two people on Sunday morning – a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of murder and a 28-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder.
The Met said a 25-year-old man, who was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder, was released without further action against him.
The boy’s closest relative was informed of his death, and inquiries into the circumstances continued over the weekend.
Lawrence Adu said the boy was a friend of his uncle and knew him “all his life”.
“A good young man, very handsome and always laughing,” said Adu, who is also the boy’s neighbor.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Wrigley from Met’s Expert Crime Command said, ‘These arrests are a positive step for our investigation, but we’re still working to pinpoint what exactly happened on Friday night.
There were a lot of people in the area at the time, and I appeal for those who haven’t come forward to do so.
“The pointless murder of a 15-year-old boy understandably shocked the community, and I urge them to help us bring those responsible to justice.”
Officers were summoned to report a stabbing on Woodman Street near the Royal Docks last night. Kayjon died on the spot.
A witness told The Sun: ‘A large group of children chasing him were after him like a pack of dogs.
I didn’t know what was happening, but it looked like it wasn’t going to stop until I got it.
Police and members of the London Ambulance Service (LAS) joined and found him injured.
Despite the paramedics’ efforts to save his life, he died at the scene.
Friends paid tribute to the teenager and described him as a ‘good boy’ close to his mother.
Friend Khalif-Shakeil Edwards posted his profile picture on Facebook, ‘Rest in peace my little G.’ with the message of young people.
He also wrote: ‘Rest in peace, my little brother. June 2005 – December 2020. ‘
A close family friend told The Sun: ‘I know the family very well, they are a big part of the community here. He was a big part of the community and many people knew him. He was just a young boy and his whole life passed before them.
He was a good boy and he loved his mother, they were very close. He’s definitely heartbroken, and I’ll go and try to see him later in person. ‘
Police added that an article 60 order was issued in the area allowing the police to stop and search anyone without reasonable justification.
Shortly before this attack, a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in Hounslow, West London, and suffered life-threatening injuries after being injured by acid.
A video circulated on social media after the incident showed an injured teenager wearing only a pair of boxer shorts was helped to get him off the ground before being taken to the ambulance by paramedics.
Police were called to Whitton Road in Hounslow at around 6.15pm.
Police and London Ambulance Service paramedics attended and found the 17-year-old with stab wounds and injuries caused by a ‘corrosive substance’.
He was taken to a west London hospital. His injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
In footage of him being treated, the young man appeared to be clutching a white length of tissue to his face.
So far there have been no arrests but an investigation is underway.
Several roads in the vicinity remained closed while officers conduct enquiries, police said.

On Thursday, officers from the Violent Crime Taskforce recovered 30 combat knives and a lock knife as they arrested two teenagers in north London.
A 16-year-old male was seen handing boxes containing the weapons through the window of a property in Islington.
A 15-year-old was discovered inside the property with boxes containing more knives and a lock knife in his trousers.
Both were arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and remain in police custody while investigations continue.
Sergeant Pete Luciano of the Violent Crime Taskforce said: ‘The seizure of these 31 weapons will have undoubtedly prevented them from being used in acts of violence and potentially even saved lives.
‘Our officers are patrolling areas known for violence and this case proves the value of intelligence led stop and search.
‘Reducing serious violence is the Met’s top priority and I hope the community feel reassured we were able to remove these weapons from the streets.’
