Statement from Cllr Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities and Climate Emergency on fatal incident in Brentford.
Published: Saturday, 13th November 2021
Following a double stabbing at around 8.00pm Albany Parade, Brentford last night, which resulted in the death of man in his 20s and the hospitalisation of a woman in her 80s Cllr Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities and Climate Emergency, said:
"This is sad, distressing news and our thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of the deceased and the injured woman. This kind of crime is very rare in Hounslow, and we join the police in appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to call the police on 101, quoting reference 6423/12nov or, if they wish to remain anonymous to contact independent charity Crimestoppers. At this stage, there is nothing to suggest that the incident is linked to terrorism.”
A man, aged in his 30s, was arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder on the morning of Saturday, 13 November. He has been taken into custody at a London police station.
While enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances, there is nothing to suggest that the incident is linked to terrorism and at present nobody else is sought as a suspect for the stabbings.
