Teenager jailed for murder of 17-year-old in Clapham South

Teenager jailed for murder of 17-year-old in Clapham South

A teenager has been sentenced for murdering a student outside Clapham South tube station last November.

Malcolm Mide-Madariola, 17, was fatally attacked following a confrontation with two males who were intent on fighting the group he was standing with after college.

A 17-year-old youth was found guilty of murder and possession of an offensive weapon at the Old Bailey on May 24.

Having now turned 18, he can be named as Tammuz Brown, from the Abbey Wood area of Greenwich.

Brown was sentenced at the same court on September 6, to 16 years' imprisonment.

Police were called at around 4.35pm on November 2, 2018 to reports of a stabbing in Balham Hill, outside Clapham South Underground station.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. Malcolm was found suffering from a stab wound.
Officers and paramedics gave the boy emergency first aid before he was taken to a south London hospital, where he died a short time later. His next of kin were informed.

A post-mortem examination at St George's Hospital Mortuary gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command quickly launched a murder investigation led by Detective Chief Inspector John Massey. This included a review of local CCTV footage and forensic analysis.

The court heard how Malcolm, from Peckham, was stabbed three times, including once in the heart, during the attack on 2 November.

The weapon used was a hunting knife which police would later trace to Tammuz Brown.

Detective Chief Inspector John Massey, who led the investigation, said: “Malcolm was a student at a college in Clapham and had his whole future ahead of him.

“Brown had clearly come to cause trouble and did not hesitate to inflict fatal injuries following a minor dispute.

“The dangers of carrying a knife are clear to see. The fact that a specialist hunting knife was used and purchased in advance makes the attack all the more sickening.

“Nothing will bring Malcom back but I hope this sentencing goes some small way to helping the family move on from what has been a deeply traumatic phase in their lives.”
