LONDON, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- A teenager was stabbed to death in one of the busiest streets in downtown London on Monday afternoon, the traditional Boxing Day, while another man was injured in a similar case later in the evening.

The first incident happened at about 1:45 p.m. local time (GMT 1345), when an 18-year-old man was stabbed and died at the scene in the Oxford Street, said a Metropolitan Police spokesman via telephone interview by Xinhua.

Ten people were taken into custody during ensuing investigation, and two knives were seized, police said.

Further information about the victim was not yet available as police are waiting for him to be identified.

The second case happened at 6:20 p.m. local time (GMT 1820). The victim was stabbed in the leg and soon taken to hospital. Police described his wound as "not life-threatening."

Three suspects have been caught by press time. A section of Oxford Street has been cordoned off.

"It is too early to say whether the two cases were connected," a police officer told Xinhua reporter.

Oxford Street was one of the most famous and busiest business areas in London. During Boxing Day, thousands of people flocked there for a shopping spree.
