A teenager was stabbed last night in the same north London road where a man died after confronting a group when they threw conkers at him.

The 15-year-old was attacked in College Close in Edmonton as officers were looking for witnesses to the stabbing of Stephen Grisales, 21, which took place last week.

The newest victim’s condition is serious but not life threatening.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the stabbing.

The two incidents are not connected, police say.

Grisales was stabbed in the heart in Edmonton last Wednesday and died the following day.

Student stabbed in row about conkers

He is not thought to have known the suspects, who were three young black males in their early teens or twenties.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the murder, including two 15-year-old boys who remain in custody and a 19-year-oold man and a 16-year-old girl who are out on bail.

A 15-year-old boy will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday, after being charged with Grisales’ murder.

Victoria Atta Saow, 56, who lives in the road where the stabbing took place said: "We heard a dog barking outside and thought there was a dog fight. My daughter ran outside and I followed and we saw the man lying down in the arms of the lady next door.

"The lady said he told her the group had thrown conkers at him so he'd thrown one back.

"He told her he was stabbed and asked her to call an ambulance. Everybody tried to do what they could.

"It took 27 minutes for it (the ambulance) to arrive. A small boy ran down to the main road and flagged a police car to come in. We didn't see any of the guys who did it."
