Two 15-year-old boys have been charged with the murder of a man stabbed to death in north London.

Portuguese national and keen boxer Wilham Mendes, 25, was found with multiple stab wounds at Albert Place in Tottenham at about 1.20am on Saturday.

Mendes, who had lived in the UK since 2015, was taken to an east London hospital but was pronounced dead about an hour later.

Two 15-year-old boys, who cannot be named because of their age, were charged on December 24 with his murder, Scotland Yard said.

The boys, who are also charged with the robbery of Mendes, will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday December 26.
