Mobility scooter murder suspect is charged: Man, 44, will appear in court today accused of stabbing to death beloved 87-year-old busker who had been raising cash for Ukraine war victims

A 44-year-old man was today charged with the murder of Thomas O’Halloran in Greenford, West London, who was stabbed to death while riding a mobility scooter.

Lee Byer, from nearby Southall, will appear at Willesden Magistrates’ Court today. Scotland Yard said the family of 87-year-old Mr O’Halloran have been informed. 

Mr O’Halloran was often seen busking with a harmonica and accordion outside a Tesco store and South Greenford railway station, and raised money for Ukraine.

Tributes have poured in for the pensioner, who is said to have been a member of the Irish community in Ealing and was described as ‘well-liked and well-loved’. 

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command are leading the investigation, and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the death.
