Robert Antonio Levy, aged 16 years was murdered a few yards from his home in Hackney whilst trying to prevent a fight. Robert had a kind and considerate nature, because of this he was always thinking of others. On the 16th September 2004, Robert went to the aid of a younger boy who was being threatened by a schoolboy with a knife. Robert suffered multiple stab wounds at the hands of the 15-year-old schoolboy. Attempts were made to save his life but tragically he died.
Robert had just completed his GCSE’s and had started his A-levels. He was a bright youngman who had a whole life ahead of him with a desire to fulfill all of his dreams and ambitions, mainly to become an architect. His life was taken by another youth who felt the need to carry a knife without thinking of the consequences.
