Victim’s condition improves, arrest made in Harrow stabbing incident

In a significant development regarding the stabbing that occurred at Elmgrove Gardens, Harrow on Sunday, (September 24), we have received an update from the Met Police.

Initially, on the day of the incident, a police cordon was put in place following reports of a stabbing at around 11:30am.

A spokesperson from the Met Police stated, “Police were called at 11:31hrs on Sunday, 24 September to reports of a stabbing at a residential property in Elmgrove Gardens, Kenton.


“Officers attended along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service. A man, aged in his 50s, was taken to the hospital with stab wounds. He remained in a life-threatening condition.”

However, today, on Tuesday, September 26th, the Met Police issued an update confirming that the victim is no longer in a life-threatening condition.

Additionally, they have made an arrest in connection with the incident, and the suspect has been charged and remanded in custody.

Meanwhile, the local community has expressed its concerns about the incident.

Mandy Douch, a Harrow resident, posted on Facebook, saying, “Very sad, hope he’s okay. It makes you want to move, hearing of stabbings all the time.”

Adam Metselaar commented, “This is the fourth in a month, one murder, it’s becoming a lawless place, and what are the police doing? I’ve never seen them since they all moved to Wembley.

“When the police were based in Harrow, at least people could see them, now they are like ghosts, never seen, and do they really exist?”

Joanne Sweeney added, “Sad times! Elmgrove born and bred, and to be honest, this sort of crime is pretty much unheard of there! Very nice place to live, and I always feel safe there. Wishing whomever the victim is a speedy recovery.”
