Arrests after teenager stabbed to death on Oxford Street

18 year-old Seydou Diarrassouba was attacked in broad daylight at a branch of the trainer store Foot Locker while it was full of shoppers.

The post-mortem examination determined the cause of death had been a "single stab wound to the heart".

Formal identification by family members is yet to take place but the Metropolitan Police said they were "satisfied" it was 18-year-old Seydou Diarrassouba from Mitcham.

Amateur video footage posted on YouTube showed angry scenes outside the Foot Locker store as police held back remonstrating youths while paramedics attempted to revive the first stabbing victim.

Scotland Yard have issued a statement denying a taser was "deployed" during the chaotic scenes which followed Mr Diarrassouba's murder.
