Kaljug Posted January 9, 2010 Report Share Posted January 9, 2010 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8450052.stm A man was stabbed to death while chasing thieves who had snatched a woman's handbag in east London. Sukhwinder Singh, of Barking, was attacked while pursuing two men who mugged a 28-year-old woman near Barking station in east London on Friday night. Mr Singh, 31, had chased the men along Victoria Road, into Uphall Road, where he was stabbed at about 1900 GMT, the Metropolitan Police said. He was taken to the Royal London Hospital where he later died. Police have set up a cordon around the murder scene and officers have been searching bins in Victoria Road. The two suspects were described as black, aged in their 20s to 30s, and both were about 5ft 7in to 6ft. Detective Inspector John Sandlin said: "This is a tragic death of a man who was killed for attempting to stop others committing crime. "I am appealing for anyone that knows who committed this crime, or who has any information about those who committed this crime, to do the right thing and come forward and contact police." He also urged anyone who had seen the robbery, the following altercation or people fleeing the area to come forward. "It is also possible that the suspects may have abandoned the bag stolen and I appeal to anyone who may find a brown leather shoulder bag, to contact police," he added. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
