Teenager charged with murder of 20-year-old who was stabbed to death outside London tube station

A teenager has been charged with murder after a 20-year-old man was stabbed to death during a confrontation outside Parsons Green Tube station.

Omid Saidy, 20, was killed outside the London station on Monday, where 30 people were injured in a terror attack last month.

Mr Saidy, who lived in nearby Fulham, was treated by paramedics but pronounced dead at the scene.

Shafiq Smith, 18, of Brudenell Road, London, was charged with murder in the early hours of Saturday morning.

He was also charged with attempted murder, and threatening a person with a bladed or pointed article in a public place.

He is due to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court later today.

Police were called on Monday, October 16 at 7.37pm following reports of three males stabbed in the area surrounding Parsons Green Tube Station.

Detectives believe that Mr Saidy had confronted a drug dealer and another male who was with him before.

Police said the victim then chased after two men before he caught up with them and was fatally stabbed.

An 18-year-old man, who was with Mr Saidy at the time, then came to his aid in a moped and was also stabbed, police said.

Omid Saidy was pronounced dead at the scene

Officers and paramedics rushed to the scene and treated three men, who were found at various locations suffering from injuries.

Mr Saidy was pronounced dead at the scene and two men aged 16 and 18 were taken by London Ambulance Service to a west London hospital.

The 16-year-old male was discharged from hospital and arrested and charged with murder and possession of a bladed article.

Detectives are appealing for any further information on the incident

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, of the Met's Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) who is leading the investigation, said: "We continue to piece together a picture of how the sequence of events leading to and immediately following the murder took place.

"It is imperative that we speak to anyone who was in the area of Parsons Green station between 7pm and 8pm who may have witnessed the murder or the actions of the suspects immediately following the incident.

"In addition, I am keen to identify the black male who fled Parsons Green Lane immediately following the murder and am appealing for footage that members of the public may have recorded as events in the area took place.

"Although we have charged a male with Omid's murder, this is still a live and ongoing investigation.

"A young man has tragically lost his life for simply asking a drug dealer to move on. I urge anyone who can assist our investigation to come forward without delay."
