A teenager has been jailed for 13-years for stabbing a schoolboy outside a birthday party in Kenton a month after being sent on ‘a knife awareness course’.
Walker Sesay, 19, was in a group of men summoned to deal with gatecrashers when a 16-year-old girl’s birthday party advertised on Instagram ended in chaos.
Che Labastide-Wellington, 17, a student from Kensal Green, was knifed through the heart as he fled a ‘small army’ of youths who gatecrashed the gathering in Harrow.
The birthday girl’s mother banned alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes from the party in Belvedere Way and insisted all guests were searched before entry.
