'Kind and polite' British teenager stabbed to death by foreigner
A man who was stabbed to death after 'running for his life' down a suburban street has been named as 18-year-old Lance Scott Walker.
Neighbours watched in horror as he was chased by his attacker after a fight broke out inside a property in Hayes, west London, yesterday afternoon.
The teenager collapsed and the attacker is said to have sat beside him and repeatedly stabbed him in the back as children looked on.
Idris Hassan, 18, who lived on the estate and is believed to have known the victim, was arrested and has been charged with murder.
Neighbours today described Lance, who lived in nearby Gledwood Gardens, as a 'kind, quiet boy' who was 'humble and polite'.
He has not yet been formally identified but police say they are confident the body belongs to him.
Father-of-two Gurdeep Chaggar, 47, said he ran out of his home to try and save the youngster's life after his daughters, aged 11 and 12, told him what happened.
He said: 'My daughters went out to get ice creams. They came back and ran up the stairs saying, "There's a guy stabbing a guy - seriously dad".'
Mr Chaggar, a single father, said he stayed with the teenager until paramedics arrived.
