Man dies after being stabbed outside the Salisbury Pub, in Green Lanes, Harringay
Shopkeepers have spoken of their shock after a 44-year-old died following a stabbing in Harringay.
The attack is believed to have happened during a row outside the Salisbury Pub, on the corner of Green Lanes and St Ann’s Road, at around 7pm yesterday.
Police were called to North Middlesex Hospital where the man had attended suffering serious stab injuries.
He had been driven to hospital by his girlfriend and was later transferred to the Royal London Hospital where he was pronounced dead later that evening.
The scene of the stabbing
The manager of a business across the street from the scene of the stabbing said he was working at the time of the attack but heard nothing.
He did not wish to be named but said: “This is really shocking because I didn’t hear a thing.
“There were no screams or shouts and no commotion – I only knew that something had happen at around 8.30pm when the police started putting up the blue tape.
“I’m really sorry for the family but I’m a bit surprised he didn’t call an ambulance because that’s the first thing I would have done.”
The area where the attack is believed to have taken place has been cordoned off and a police tent has been put up.
Next of kin have been informed but police are still waiting for formal identification and post-mortem examination is to be held in due course.
Mohammed Yusuf, who runs a computer repair business on Green Lanes, said the attack is very unusual for the area.
He said: “I have never seen a stabbing, or a shooting, or anything like that – no way.
“There have been minor things but nothing like this.
“It seems like it happened at a really awkward time of the day because no one seems to have seen what happened.”
Detectives from Haringey Police are investigating, supported by colleagues from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.
Police have appealed for witnesses to the attack to come forward but said no arrests had been made at this stage.
