A man has been found guilty of murdering a 15-year-old cyclist in north London during an attempt to steal his bike.
Joshua Williams, 18, stabbed Alan Cartwright who was “innocently” riding along Caledonian Road, in Islington, on 27 February.
Alan was cycling with friends when he was targeted by a group of robbers.
The Old Bailey heard Williams lashed out at Alan with a blade, delivering a single stab wound.
At the time of the attack, Williams had been on police bail on suspicion of possessing a 4in (10cm) lock knife, although he was never charged.
He had claimed to have an alibi, but was convicted of murder and conspiracy to rob.
