I went through the same thing here on Coldharbour Lane a few years ago, watched and described to the 999 person exactly what was going on (2 men dragging a woman out of a car, beat the driver and her) was told not to swear or they would hang up. 2 days later get a call from the police, the only thing they said was there's been a lot of this sort of thing lately!!! I am 2 minutes from the police station and yet they still had no-one available

Yes, too many cuts. I was on hold for a bit when I called the crime in! But this is weirdly absent, they usually come.
Get onto all the election candidates and ask each one of them to follow it up with Brixton Police Station. Honestly, at this stage my vote could go in more than one direction, waiting for some interaction or encounter with a candidate. Hearing someone who is prepared to resolve an issue for a potential constituent could sway me. Presumably if they are in any way clued in, they’ll know U75 so this could be a good way for them to demonstrate their ability to make a difference. And do so to a large number of local people.

Turns out my neighbor saw it and filmed the whole thing. She got away. When I was fetching my phone and I heard her yell 'he's got me' and then they'd disappeared, I thought he'd abducted her but it turns out he ran away and she ran in the opposite direction. Not before he'd kicked her in the head. I'm just glad she's alive. The police went to my neighbor which is why they didn't come to me.

This is 17-year old Kyall Parnell from Thornton Heath, a former Dunraven school pupil, who was stabbed to death Norwood Road near the junction with Station Rise at around 10.43pm on 31 December 2017 Year''s Eve ...



... he was pronounced dead at the scene at 11.38pm. A post-mortem gave the preliminary cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

Following his death, his mother Katrina paid tribute to her “amazing” son, who had recently enrolled on a bricklaying apprenticeship.

She said: “He was loved. This shouldn’t have happened. These boys need to stop doing what they’re doing.

“My boy was amazing, he was smart. He had potential to go places. They would be calling me and telling me he was the smartest boy in the class.

“He needed to be doing active things. He was good boy. These young boys need to stop and think, they need to look after each other. This is someone’s life.”

Kyall’s grandmother Maida Grant, 67, also called to an end for the bloodshed.

Speaking from her home, half a mile from where her grandson died, she told the Evening Standard:

“This is happening too much. Every day if there is an argument, a knife is always involved. If they don’t get a response they want, they still draw a knife. “It’s as if life is cheap and they don’t think of the consequences.”

Ms Grant added: “His mother was the last person that he spoke to. He told her he was going to a party. He was loving, he always liked hugs. Christmas Eve was the last time I saw him.

On 10 January 2018, at Southwark Coroner’s Court, it was revealed that the 16-year-old boy who stabbed Kyall Parnell to death may not be charged with murder because he "acted in self-defence", police have said.

Police said Kyall was himself armed with a knife and had behaved “very aggressively” towards his attacker, chasing him through the south London district.

Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell, from the Metropolitan Police's Homicide and Major Crime Command, told the court Kyall was with a group of friends on a bus when another group including the unnamed 16-year-old boarded.

"As those three males walked up to the top deck where Kyall and his friends were sitting, there was immediately a confrontation,” he added.

"The three males who had just got on at Tulse Hill got off the bus and they were pursued by Kyall and his friends, with two of the males seeking refuge in a convenience store.

"Witnesses had seen the chasing group in possession of knives and Kyall is seen in very clear CCTV on the route 68 bus to approach an individual in a very aggressive manner with his hand placed towards his left hip area - there was a suggestion of something glinting.

"A knife was found on Kyall afterwards. The male, fearing for his safety, has stabbed Kyall once in the chest. This stab wound pierced the heart and it's that that led to his death.”

DI Titterrell said that during the confrontation, Kyall’s friends told him to “stab him, finish him off”, which the younger boy claimed caused him to take out a knife from his bag before plunging it into the victim in an attempt to protect himself.

The 16-year-old, who was arrested and bailed, told police he had been stabbed before in attacks involving Kyall, from Thornton Heath in south London.

DI Titterrell said the Tulse Hill investigation was ongoing but at this stage the Crown Prosecution Service had indicated that it would not charge the attacker with a homicide offence because of the “real issue” of self-defence.

The inquest was opened and adjourned to a date to be fixed.

To remain anonymous, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.​
By way of update, Assistant Coroner Tony Badenoch QC has adjourned the inquest into the death of Kyall Parnell to enable Kyall Parnell's mother to appeal against the Crown Prosecution Service's decision not to charge the boy who stabbed him.

Kyall Parnell was stabbed in the heart while standing on the central reservation in Norwood Road, at the junction with Station Rise, following a disturbance that had broken out on a 68 bus.

At the adjourned hearing, it emerged that the suspect accused of stabbing Kyall Parnell had been stabbed himself eight months earlier, in April 2017, and claimed Kyall Parnell was one of the attackers.

One of the first police officers to treat Kyall Parnell removed his (Parnell's) trousers and heard a clink and saw a knife laying next to his thigh or leg. A knife was removed from inside his boxer shorts."

It was described as an eight-inch kitchen knife with a black handle.


Three days after Kyall Parnell was stabbed to death, his grandmother Maida Grant, 67, had been quoted in the Evening Standard as follows:

“This is happening too much. Every day if there is an argument, a knife is always involved. If they don’t get a response they want, they still draw a knife. “It’s as if life is cheap and they don’t think of the consequences.”

According to Kyall Parnell's mother at the adjourned inquest hearing:

"The family does not accept the decision made. I know I can appeal the the decision if we want but I have not appealed yet."

When asked what she wanted from the inquest, she added: "I want to clear my son's name and [ensure the suspect] faces the punishment he deserves."

She added: "He [Kyall] never took the knife [in his boxer shorts] out at any time, I know he had a knife on him but he never took it out."


Kyall Parnell's family have not yet clarified the purpose for which he was armed with an eight-inch kitchen knife with a black handle at the time of his death, while on his way to a party.

It remains possible that they may do when the inquest resumes.

Turns out my neighbor saw it and filmed the whole thing. She got away. When I was fetching my phone and I heard her yell 'he's got me' and then they'd disappeared, I thought he'd abducted her but it turns out he ran away and she ran in the opposite direction. Not before he'd kicked her in the head. I'm just glad she's alive. The police went to my neighbor which is why they didn't come to me.
That is good to hear (that she escaped)

Terrifying. I've just forwarded your posts to my 16 year old daughter, which I hope is the right thing to do.
She's 16 and comes home later than she should, fearlessly, and I'm trying to tell her she needs to take her safety more seriously.
Quite how you manage that is turning out to be really tricky.

Christ. She had a lucky escape. A very close friend of mine had a similar experience just off Brixton Hill and was not so lucky. It didn't end well for her at all.

Tbh ringo , I'm not sure what you mean by late, but I would insist on meeting her at the bus stop.
I would if she would tell me when she was on her way.
She has started taking buses, trains between West Norwood and New Cross to and from her new boyfriends house, and walking to friends and back late.

I'm trying to get her to be home by 10:30pm during the week and 11:30pm at weekends, but she keeps stopping contact and being late or somehow managing to afford Ubers.

I don't want the same crap relationship with her that I had with my parents at that age so I'm trying to enforce this while not pushing her away.
The balance is tricky and I end up worried.

Personally I like the Casa Degli Amici place for a cheap family sit down Italian meal and find them very friendly (YMMV). They also have red wine in a basket - what's not to like?

Still struggling for Indian now Village Masaleh has gone (and Gousia many moons ago)
The above from 2017.

Fortunes seem to have changed. Went into Casa Del Amici after Xmas and they have been taken over by Village Masaleh (using Village Masaleh receipts and now staffed by Village Masaleh people and, what appears to be, their relations.

When did that happen?

I had heard from when it first opened that it was owned by the same people from Village Masaleh.

Thx - I did not know that.
Anyway, in that case, it seems just that they are more heavily involved in front of house now

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If councils launched a service whereby once every other month (or more frequently if the budget allowed) a low flatbed lorry with a skip on it would drive on one’s street or estate at a scheduled time, allowing any residents needing to get rid of bulky waste to flag it down as it drives past and dump their waste, the council would probably save money overall vs the cost of fly tipping removal.

And it would of course be a very useful and convenient service to boot for residents, even more so for the less well-off.

Fly tippers don't give a fuck though. They want to dump their shit wherever they want, whenever they want.

A small Lambeth flatbed comes by very regularly to clear the flytip on my road. It's as good as official now.

Took my son for his 2nd cut at the Eagles barbershop. Really good, they do great cuts with a lot of time and effort put into each customer. They're nice guys and cheap too.
How cheap?

I usually take my five year old boy to HaircutSir at the bottom of Tulse Hill. They’re £8 and also very nice people. He’s in need of a trim. Eagles would be handier to get to, but I feel loyalty to HS.

I second The Eagle. Owner isn't the best of the barbers there. I go for one of the other two. £9 to shave head.

Andrews on brixton hill is my fave.

£9. My son's dad used to take him to HaircutSir as that's our closest but the cuts were rubbish. He always looked like a pudding bowl.

There was a burglary at the Electric. Apparently they didn't get very much as no cash is left in the building so they fucked the place up as much as possible instead. :(

There was also a burglary further up the road at Pintadera. Smashed the window and took the float tray from the till. The fuckers.
