A second man has been charged with the murder of a teenager who was stabbed to death on London's Oxford Street during the Boxing Day sales.

Seydou Diarrassouba, 18, of Mitcham, south-west London, was killed on 26 December in the Foot Locker sports shop, near Bond Street Tube station.

Jermaine Joseph, 23, of Tottenham, north London, was charged with murder on Tuesday morning.

Thulani Khumalo, 20, also of Tottenham, was charged in January.

Single stab wound

Five other males - three aged 16 and another two aged 22 and 17 - have been arrested in connection with the death and remain on police bail pending further inquiries.

Seven men previously arrested have been released without charge.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Diarrassouba died from a single stab wound to the heart.

His death, at 13:45 GMT, led to chaotic scenes as officers tried to restrain a crowd which had gathered outside.

Mr Joseph, from Conway Road, has been remanded in custody after appearing at Hendon Magistrates' Court.

Mr Khumalo, from Etherley Road, was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 11 April.
