Three boys were arrested and charged with murder despite the fact that the victim is still alive, a court in the United Kingdom has heard.
Scotland Yard investigators told the court that Rashid Naeem, 29, a cellphone retailer in East Ham, London, will die from stab wounds he suffered when he was attacked in broad daylight on Sunday.
The boys, two 14 years olds and one 16 year old, will appear in Stratford Youth Court, to face charges of murder.
The attack began after the victim, who owned a mobile phone shop on Green Street, recognized the three teenagers as the robbers responsible of stealing phones from his shop.
Police said that the victim confronted the group and was stabbed during a fight. Naeem was taken to a hospital in East London.
“The victim remains in critical condition at the hospital. However, his injuries are fatal and therefore, the three boys have been charged with murder,” a police spokesperson said.
