AN elderly man has died after being stabbed while riding a mobility scooter in Greenford today (16).

Police and paramedics were called to Cayton Road just after 4pm. Despite their efforts, the man, believed to be in his 80s, died at the scene.

No arrests have yet been made, but police are appealing for witnesses.

Ch Supt Sean Wilson, lead for policing in Ealing, said: "This is an awful incident that will understandably cause considerable alarm to people locally and across London.

"Our thoughts are with the elderly victim.

“The support of the public is crucial. Police and the community must work together to identify violent offenders and remove them from our streets.

“My officers will remain on scene. They are there to help and protect you – if you have information you want to share please approach them and tell them what you know.”

Anyone who has information should call 101 ref CAD 4691/16 Aug.

Officers are particularly asking for anyone with dashcam or cycle helmet footage to contact them if they were using the Western Avenue eastbound near Cayton Road and Welland Gardens between 3.15 and 4.15.
