Trelawney Avenue stabbed: Three arrested in murder investigation

THREE Slough teenagers have been arrested in connection with a murder investigation.

It comes after the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old man that took place in the city on Thursday May 5.

It happened near the shops on Trelawney Avenue in Langley around 7:15 p.m.

Thames Valley Police have since launched a murder investigation and have subsequently arrested three teenagers who all remain in police custody.

The victim has not yet been formally identified.

Lead investigator Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, head of the Major Crimes Unit, said: ‘We have made three arrests as part of our thorough investigation into the tragic stabbing on Trelawney Avenue in Slough on Thursday evening.

“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this most difficult time and I ask that their privacy be respected.”

As part of today’s police update, the force also condemned the sharing of footage relating to the incident on social media.

Senior officers have urged the public not to share such distressing images and videos.

Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown added: “We are aware of the videos circulating on social media regarding the incident and I urge the public not to share them.

“This practice is abhorrent and has caused significant distress to the family and friends of the victim.

“Not only do they contain shocking images, but sharing and viewing them could lead to investigative difficulties and even open the perpetrators to investigation for offenses following the arrests.

“So please do not share or view these images or videos as they are of no use to the family or the police at this critical stage of the investigation.”

Anyone with information about the incident or who saw what happened outside shops on Trelawney Avenue in Langley at around 7.15pm on Thursday is asked to contact police.

You can do this by calling 101 quoting the May 5th 2010 reference.
