Stephen #Lawrence :NORRIS:MURDER VICTIM STEPHEN LAWRENCE 'SWALLOWED UP' BY MOB OF RACISTS
ELTHAM, SOUTHEAST LONDON.
Teenage murder victim Stephen Lawrence was 'swallowed up' by a gang of white youths who shouted racist abuse at him, the Old Bailey heard today (Tues).
Stephen, 18, was forced to the ground and stabbed twice in the upper torso in Eltham, southeast London, on 22 April, 1993.
He had been waiting for a bus with his friend Duwayne Brooks (CORR), also 18, when they were approached by a group of five white males who were heard to shout 'what, what nigger'.
As the youths 'rushed' at the pair, Duwayne was able to get away, but Stephen was surrounded and attacked.
They had been waiting in Well Hall Road around 10.35pm aiming to head back north to Woolwich, jurors were told.
