Teenagers suspected in Vanløse knife slaying

Cops say death not related to victim’s gang connections

Copenhagen Police are looking for three boys aged 15, 16 and 18 suspected of having attacked two men with a knife in Copenhagen’s Vanløse neighbourhood on Tuesday.

The late morning attack left one man with a knife wound to his hand and arm and took the life of a 21-year-old man with connections to the biker gang Bandidos. The dead man had been stabbed in the back.

Police say that the victim’s death appears to be unrelated to his gang connections.

“We believe this was a spontaneous incident that happened when the two groups met on the street," police inspector Lau Thygesen said. “We are searching for three suspects who know that we are looking for them.”

After the stabbing, the two men staggered into a nearby tavern.

“Lock the door and call the police,” the mortally wounded man said, according to a guest who spoke to Ekstra Bladet tabloid.

A woman at the pub attempted to give him first aid and he was then rushed by ambulance to Rigshospitalet's trauma centre, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The assailants were described as “foreign looking” and police say that there is nothing to suggest that the attack was related to recent tensions between the Bandidos and the Hells Angels.

 

Police have now released the names of the three suspects in the stabbing.

Habibullah Rahimi 18, Taha Chiadmi 16, and Jonathan Johnsen Dos Santos 15 are being requested to turn themselves in at a police station or call 114 so officers can come and pick them up.
