Walthamstow stabbing: Jason Adinkra charged with attempted murder after northeast London ‘attack’

Jason Adinkra has been charged with attempted murder and himself suffered a stab wound.

An Edmonton man has been charged with attempted murder after a stabbing in Walthamstow last Wednesday (February 22).

Jason Adinkra, 18, of Hythe Close, Edmonton, was arrested, along with another man, after a man in his 30s was stabbed in the back and arm in Brandon Road, near Wood Street station.

He was taken to hospital where his condition remains life threatening.

Adinkra and another 18-year-old were taken to hospital after being found with non-life-threatening stab wounds on nearby Stocksfield Road.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, although only Adinkra has been charged.

Police say the other man remains in hospital and will be taken into custody once he’s been discharged.

Detectives described the charge as a “significant step” in the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Rogers said: "This attack left a man seriously injured in hospital and we are doing all we can to track down those responsible.”

He added: “This charge is a significant step in our investigation, however our enquiries are ongoing and we are still appealing for witnesses.

"I ask anyone who has not yet spoken with us to come forward or to contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously. The information you provide may be vital to bringing those responsible to justice."
