Teens bailed after Southall nightclub stabbing

Tuesday, 6 September, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Three teenagers, two aged 18 and one aged 17, have been released on bail after a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in a nightclub in Southall on Thursday night.

The victim, who has not been named, was attending an under 21s night at the Tudor Rose, a Caribbean club, when he was attacked at around 23:30.

He was taken to hospital with a minor stab wound to the chest and was released the following day.

The victim’s mother claimed to be disgusted by the club’s lax security in a situation which could have turned fatal.

In a statement, she said: “My son went to a club in Southall and they allowed people to go in there with a weapon.

“He’s never, ever been in any trouble with the police – he’s a law abiding citizen, people can vouch for that. The doctors said luckily he moved in a certain way so it’s just a superficial stab wound, but I could’ve lost my son last night.

“He was a bit shaken up but he’s OK now, you’ve just got to move on. I can’t stop him going out but I won’t let him go there again.

“Councillors have been trying to shut the place down. The owners keep calling it racism, but I’m a black woman, it’s about protecting peoples’ children”.

The teens, who were arrested following the incident, have been bailed and are due to appear in court on November 18.
