What exactly happened in street attack at west London?
Kind According to store employees who spoke to the Mirror, Thomas had been performing outside a Tesco supermarket a mile from the scene of his stabbing while collecting money for Ukraine.
According to a Tesco security guard, he kept the money he raised in a yellow box on his scooter.
The same security guard asserted that he had previously attempted to pinch from the business and recognized the individual seen by police fleeing the scene as a local shoplifter.
The old man plays here every afternoon, but he wasn’t at the store yesterday, the man added.
“I believe the man chased or followed Thomas. He was raising a sizable amount of cash.
A bunch of young guys was reportedly around the victim, according to Frasley Coutinho, who lives across the street from the incident.
I noticed a small group of people forming around him, and then he drove by and stopped further away, at which point a number of young lads had gathered.
Mr. Coutinho claimed to have captured some of the incidents on a CCTV camera, but a plant had blocked it.
He explained, “I had a rose plant hiding it so I could see no more.
Chief Superintendent Sean Wilson, the commander of the Western Area, claimed in a statement today that Thomas had his life “snatched away” in an act of “unprovoked violence.”
In spite of checking CCTV and doing forensic investigations, he requested assistance from the public.
He managed to move around 75 yards on his mobility scooter to Runnymede Gardens, where he beckoned down a passerby for assistance, sometime after 4 o’clock, according to their theory.
