A boy who was riding his bicycle in middle of the night, was brutally murdered by a gang of hoodlums with machetes, according to police in the United Kingdom.

London police said that on Sunday, at around 1:30 a.m., the attackers who were wearing masks to hide their identities and waving machetes, attacked the 17-year-old boy, and left him to die.

Neighborhood residents who heard the boy screaming for help, called the police, and the victim was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police that they saw six people coming out of a car and running after the boy. The group caught up with the boy despite the fact that he tried to get away from them on his bike.

The victim began screaming “help me I am dying,” waking up the sleeping residents. The boy was then stabbed numerous times.

The attackers fled after one of them shouted that the police were coming. The victim was left to die on top of a car. So far, no arrests have been made.

Residents saw the group of attackers harassing people earlier in the evening.
