Two Irish ‘Good Samaritans’ come to aid of stabbed schoolboy

Victim looking to thank his helpers in person

A teenage boy who was the victim of a vicious assault wishes to thank the Irish men who came to his aid when others passed him by.

Jahmal Swaby (15) was stabbed at Finsbury Park station in London by a gang of thieves in the early hours of Sunday morning.

According to London24, the injured youth – who was targeted for a Louis Vuitton scarf he was wearing –  then staggered out on to the road seeking help.

But while traffic on the road swerved to avoid him, it was two men with Irish accents that came to his aid.

They told him not to panic, placed him on the ground and put pressure on the wound to reduce the loss of blood.

They then called an ambulance which took Jahmal to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, where he was treated for a three-inch deep stab wound.

The helpers had Irish accents and one was wearing a black polo top. They have both been described as middle aged, around 6ft tall and of normal build.

Two boys aged 14 and 17 who were arrested in connection with the attack have been bailed to return to a police station next month.

Jahmal has spoken of his desire to meet his 'life-savers' and thank them in person.

An international online appeal to help find these ‘Good Samaritans’ is now underway.
