A teen was stabbed to death at a party in the west of Sydney.
The alleged offender, according to NSW police, was the boyfriend of a mutual friend who had been invited to the party.
A 16-year-old boy was stabbed to death at a party in a home in western Sydney.
Early Saturday morning, emergency workers were called to a house in Ropes Crossing, near Blacktown, where they found a boy with a stab wound.
Even though the police did CPR before the paramedics got there, the boy died at the scene.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Tickner said that the alleged offender was the boyfriend of a mutual friend who had been invited to the party by a teenage girl there.
“Unfortunately, it led to the death of a young boy. “They shouldn’t have had knives on them to begin with,” he said.
The boyfriend of the same friend came with two other men.
Detectives from the Mt. Druitt police area command and the state’s homicide squad were now looking into the case.
Officers had not yet made any arrests, but they were talking to a number of witnesses and looking for the person they thought was responsible.
The boy’s family quickly got to the scene of the accident, where they were helped by police. He has not yet been named officially.
Investigators said there was no proof that the stabbing was related to a gang or was linked to any other crimes.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1800 333 000 or the Mt Druitt police station.
