TEN teenagers and two men appeared in court today (Friday) charged with the killing of 16-year-old David Nowak 10 days before Christmas.

They are all on charges of murder and violent disorder, some also with attempted murder and possessing offensive weapons. The youngest is 15.

It involved a disturbance outside a community centre in Stoke Newington on December 15 following a birthday party, when David (pictured on holiday) was stabbed.

All those involved left the scene. But police a short time later stopped a 67 bus at traffic lights in Kingsland High Street and arrested 19 youngsters aged between 13 and 19 for questioning.

David was taken to Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, but pronounced dead 19 minutes after midnight.

He died from a single stab wound to the liver and kidney, a post mortem found.

A 15-year-old was also taken to hospital that night and detained, while two more youngsters were treated for stab wounds, then allowed home.

The 12 charged include six juveniles, a 15-year-old from Tottenham, two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old from Dalston and two 16-year-olds from Hoxton and Holloway.

The others are:

Dolovan Barzey, 18, from Dalston, charged with murder, attempted murder, violent disorder and possessing an offensive weapon;

Castro Paris, 18, from Chadwell Heath, murder, attempted murder, violent disorder and offensive weapon;

Courtney Bramble, 18, from Dalston, murder, attempted murder and violent disorder;

Marlon Cyrus, 19, from Stoke Newington, murder, violent disorder and offensive weapon; and

Gavin Goupall, 21, from Dalston, murder and violent disorder.

All 12 including the juveniles have been remanded in custody by Thames magistrates in East London.

A 13th teenager, aged 17, has been bailed to return to an East London police station on August 27.

Two youths aged 15, another aged 17 and a man of 22 were released with no further action.
