Two teenagers have been charged with murder after an 18-year-old boy was stabbed to death near a supermarket.

The two 15-year-old boys, who cannot be legally named because of their age, were charged on Friday (August 11) following the fatal stabbing of Yusuf Mohamoud.

The 18-year-old was found with serious injuries near the Sainsbury’s supermarket at Regents Park Road, Finchley, on Monday (August 7) at 9.40pm.

Despite the best efforts of emergency service personnel, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Yusuf, from Enfield, died from a stab wound, a post-mortem examination confirmed.

The two boys will appear in custody at Willesden Youth Court today (August 12), while investigations continue to find a third suspect.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Rawlinson, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have made good progress and this is a significant development, however our investigation continues and we are still working to locate a third suspect.

"With that in mind, I would reiterate my appeal to anyone who was in the area of Regent's Park Road, near to the junction with Lichfield Grove, and who witnessed the events that led to the attack on Yusuf, to get in touch.”

He added: "Another young man has died as a result of violence and we need the public's help to ensure Yusuf’s family get the justice they deserve."
