Man, 20, charged with murder after delivery driver, 48, stabbed to death & two other knife attacks on same street

A 20-YEAR-OLD man is due to appear in the dock this morning after the fatal stabbing of a father, as well as two other attacks in north-west London.

Amine Laouar has been charged with the murder of 48-year-old delivery driver Leon Street, who was stabbed to death on January 11 in Neasden, close to where he lived with his fiancee.


Laouar is also charged with grievous bodily harm with intent against a 47-year-old man who was stabbed around 10 minutes before the attack on Mr Street.

The defendant also faces a third charge of attempted murder of a 32-year-old man in Neasden Lane North on Sunday, January 17.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene on Neasden Lane North just after 9.30pm on January 11 but could not save Mr Street, who was a father and step-grandfather.

Cops previously said they were keeping an open mind over the motive as none of the victims appeared to have been robbed, and the attacker was not believed to have said anything significant to them.

Laouar, of Oxford Place, in north west London, is set to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Tom Williams (Specialist Crime) has called for anyone with information to come forward.

"I want to hear from anyone who saw a man running or otherwise acting suspiciously in the Neasden Lane North area between 9pm and 10pm on January 11, or at around 9.50am on January 17," he said.

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