Harringay men to face trial over Boxing Day Oxford Street murder of Seydou Diarrassouba
Two Harringay men accused of stabbing a teenager to death in Oxford Street on Boxing Day last year will face trial in October.
Jermaine Joseph, 23, of Conway Road, and Thulani Khumalo, 20, of Etherley Road, are charged with murder of the death of 18-year-old Seydou Diarrassouba outside the Foot Locker store on December 26.
The teenager, from Mitcham, south London, was fatally stabbed in the heart in front of horrified shoppers near the shop in the capital’s busiest shopping street after a fight broke out inside.
At the Old Bailey this morning, Joseph and Khumalo appeared via videolink, and a trial date was set for October 15.
