Family appeal following Clapham stabbing

Parents of a teenager stabbed in Clapham are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

17 year-old, Jamel Boyce, was viciously attacked in Triangle place on Friday night, he suffered stab wounds to the chest and leg.

Three men have been arrested and bailed in connection with the stabbing.

Police have also released images of three males they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Detective Sergeant Paul Graves, from Lambeth CID, said: "I'm appealing to anyone who recognises the three individuals in the CCTV images to get in contact with us. This appears to have been an unprovoked attack on a young student who was simply going about his business that day. Jamel currently remains in a critical condition and this has caused much distress to his parents and loved ones.

"We believe that a number of those involved in the incident are around the same age as Jamel and I am directly appealing to their family and friends - if you have the slightest indication that someone you know may have been involved in this incident I would encourage you to get them to hand themselves into the police.

"Likewise there will be a number of young people who will have information about the stabbing. We understand that some might have concerns about speaking to the police but it is important that those with vital information do come forward and help us with our inquiry."

Jamel's mother Pansy Boyce said: "Jamel is a shy, loving boy who is always smiling. Jamel is my only child and I'm asking if anyone knows anything no matter how small to please contact the police."

His father Patrick Boyce said: "Jamel is a very loving son, who is kind and considerate always putting others before himself. This should never have happened to Jamel and I'm asking if anyone has any information concerning who has done this to please contact the police."

Anyone with any information or anyone who recognises the individuals in the images is asked to contact Lambeth CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
