knife crime

A mother has described the horrifying moment three masked men burst into her home in the Cally and held a “Rambo knife” to her sleeping son’s chest.

A judge at the Old Bailey has apologised to the family of Tashaûn Aird, after sentencing of the three teenagers found guilty of killing him was delayed today because the probation service has still not completed a report into one of them who is said to be a victim of “modern slavery”.

One of the boys accused of the murder of 15-year-old Tashaûn Aird denies being at the scene - despite his two co-defendants insisting he was there.

One of the youths accused of murdering Tashaûn Aird has denied orchestrating the fatal attack, claiming he was only at the scene because he wanted to make a move on a girl.

A 15-year old boy on trial for stabbing Tashaun Aird to death was allegedly caught at school with a seven-inch Rambo knife in his trousers just months before the fatal attack, the Old Bailey has heard.
