A TEEN knifed to death dur­ing Box­ing Day sales on Lon­don’s Ox­ford Street was stabbed once in the heart, po­lice have con­firmed.

Sey­dou Diar­ras­souba, 18, from Mitcham, south­west Lon­don, was killed in broad day­light af­ter a fight broke out at a Foot Locker sports shoe store.

Friends of the vic­tim have paid trib­ute to him say­ing he was a “big per­son­al­ity” who al­ways had a smile on his face.

One school­friend, Munwar Shaikk, 20, said: “I heard about it on so­cial net­work sites.

“It’s dev­as­tat­ing. He was such a big per­son­al­ity and a per­son ev­ery­one in Mitcham would know.”

Last night po­lice were quizzing 11 peo­ple aged be­tween 16 and 22 about the killing.

De­tec­tives are also in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sec­ond stab­bing on the same street four hours later.

A 21-year-old man is re­cov­er­ing from a leg wound which isn’t life-threat­en­ing.

A DOGGY is not just for Christ­mas. It’s a great po­si­tion all year round!
