Detectives have renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward after a man was stabbed to death inside a youth club in Loughborough Junction’s Minet Road on Thursday night. 

Officers say they have now established that the 23-year-old victim was chased inside the club where he was attacked in what the Met is describing as a ‘targeted and premeditated attack’ at around 6.45pm on Thursday, February 21.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh said: “My team need to hear from those who were at the youth club either before, during, or after that attack.

“The youth club was open at the time and sadly many young people present would have witnessed what unfolded.

“Many of them will be shocked and traumatised by what they saw and perhaps fearful of potential reprisals if they speak to police.

“I would urge them to get in touch and if they want to do so anonymously, they can either call Crimestoppers via 0800 555 111 or give information anonymously online via the Fearless website.”
