A man has died, and a teenage boy has been injured after a stabbing in Enfield.

Police were called to a home in Millicent Grove at around 12.30am this morning (May 7) to reports that a man had been stabbed.

Officers found a man aged in his late 50s at the scene. He died shortly afterwards.

The Met says his next of kin have been informed, and a post-mortem examination is expected to take place “in due course”.

A 16-year-old boy was also treated for stab injuries. His condition is not thought to be serious.

A 21-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of murder and causing grievous bodily harm. He remains in custody at a north London police station.

Police have said that a crime scene remains in place while enquiries continue as part of the murder investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Lee, who is leading the investigation, said: “I understand the shock that an incident like this will cause the local community and I want to thank them for the patience while we have carried out our work at the scene.

“All of those involved were known to each other.

“Residents will continue to see both specialist and local officers in and around the location in the coming days; if you have any concerns or information that you think could assist then please speak to them, contact your local policing team or call 101.”
