A 17-year-old boy and a 42-year-old man have been charged in connection with the death of Jordan Briscoe in Tottenham last weekend.

Jordan, 25, was found with stab wounds in Arnold Road at 10.17pm on Sunday, 5th March. He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to hospital, where he died later that night.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder and robbery on Thursday. He appeared at Stratford Youth Court later that day where he was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday, 13th March.

Karl Black, aged 42 of Cassiobury Road, was arrested on Wednesday and charged today (Friday) with conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob Jordan Briscoe. He was remanded in custody to appear that same day at Thames Magistrates’ Court.

Detective Chief Inspector Linda Bradley, who is leading the investigation, said: “While I am incredibly grateful to everyone so far who has come forward to assist us, we still need to hear from anyone who was in the areas of Philip Lane; Arnold Road; or Clyde Road, N15 on the night of Sunday, 5th March between 9pm and 11pm.
