A 15 year old girl stabbed to death in Croydon

A 15-year-old young lady was cut to death while en route to school only south of London on Wednesday morning, and a 17-year-old male suspect was captured regarding her passing, police said.

The Metropolitan Police said that officials were at the scene at around 8:30 a.m., something like two minutes subsequent to getting reports that the young lady was cut in Croydon, an occupied private and business locale only south of London.

Boss Administrator Andy Brittain said that police vehicles, paramedics and an air emergency vehicle were dispatched, yet the young lady was articulated dead at the scene not long after.

Something like 75 minutes after the fact, Brittain said that a 17-year-old male suspect who might have realized the casualty was captured close to Croydon.

Brittain said the suspect, who wasn't recognized, was in guardianship and added that police weren't looking for any other person regarding the killing in light of the data they had.

"This is each parent's most dreaded fear, and I know the officials who answered toward the beginning of today, alongside our crisis administration partners, are crushed at the casualty's demise," he said close to the location of the cutting.

"This is a feeling I offer and I know individuals across Croydon will feel something similar," he said.

A white scientific tent was raised inside a police cordon at the scene.

Stabbings affecting youngsters are entirely expected in London, however it is moderately uncommon for such occurrences to include young ladies.

London City chairman Sadiq Khan said that he was "sorrowful" by the demise.

The Met's top cop Imprint Rowley, who spent about an hour at the scene, said the "silly homicide of a 15-year-old young lady while heading to school is difficult to fathom."

The young lady, who hasn't been named, was an understudy at the Old Castle of John Whitgift School, a confidential young ladies' school in Croydon.

The school communicated its shock at the "silly and awful passing of our much-cherished and esteemed companion and understudy."
