Charged with teen’s mur­der

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

AN 18-year-old man has ap­peared in court charged with the mur­der of Lance Walker in Hayes on Mon­day last week.

Mr Walker, 18, was found by the po­lice with stab wounds in Gled­wood Gar­dens, Hayes, near the junc­tion with Gled­wood Drive.

Idris Has­san, of Gled­wood Gar­dens, ap­peared at the Cen­tral Crim­i­nal Court on Fri­day Au­gust 19 charged with the killing of Mr Walker.

The vic­tim was treated by paramedics for his in­juries but they were un­able to save him, and Mr Walker was pro­nounced dead shortly be­fore 4.40pm.

A wit­ness de­scribed on Tues­day last week how she had seen Mr Walker ly­ing in the street with his shirt off and “cov­ered in blood”.

She said the street had been al­most empty at the time but her screams had brought other res­i­dents out of their houses.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion was car­ried out by of­fi­cers from the Homi­cide and Ma­jor Crime Com­mand.

Has­san is next due to en­ter a plea at the same court on Novem­ber 18. He was re­manded in cus­tody. Three other ar­rests have been made in con­nec­tion with Mr Walker’s death.

Mr Walker’s death came less than a fort­night af­ter a young man was stabbed mul­ti­ple times in Uxbridge town cen­tre in what po­lice de­scribed as a “dev­as­tat­ing” attack.

Two men aged 20 and 22 were ar­rested close to the scene, and a third man aged 20 was later ar­rested af­ter hand­ing him­self in at a west Lon­don po­lice sta­tion.

All three men were ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of at­tempted mur­der and have been bailed to re­turn to po­lice early next month.
