DETECTIVES from the Metropolitan Police investigating the fatal stabbing last week of 18-year-old Hussain Chaudhry in Walthamstow, have charged a man with murder yesterday (21) and arrested another two 18-year-olds on Monday (22).

Marvin Ward, 18, of Westwood Road, Ilford, is scheduled to appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Monday (22).

He was charged with the murder of Hussain and another two counts of charges of attempted murder, relating to the injuries sustained by the teenager’s brother and mother; robbery and possession of an offensive weapon.

Scotland Yard said the other two have been arrested on suspicion of murder and for assisting an offender. The names of the two are not revealed as they remain in custody.

Hussain was pronounced dead on the scene and his brother and mother suffered knife injuries when the attackers tried to rob designer jackets from their home-run business at Lea Bridge Road on Thursday (18).

According to the post-mortem report, Hussain’s death was caused by hypovolemic shock and a stab wound to the neck.

Hussain’s injured brother and mother, who were rushed to an east London hospital, have now been discharged.
