Ryheem Lindsay, 20, and Bryan Carvalho, 22, both suffered stab wounds to their legs after allegedly knifing each other in the brawl, Southwark Crown Court heard.

The pair were embroiled in the feud alongside Marlon Duggan, 38, Maliq Knox-Hooke-Campbell, 22, Javani Best, 23, Kemani Duggan, 21, and Andre Deer, 20.

Footage of the explosive altercation on May 8, 2021, shows numerous men arguing in the Oxford Street store before tensions reach boiling point.

Carvalho was shopping with his brother when he was allegedly pushed by Lindsay before being “rushed” by a group of yobs.

Describing the dramatic footage, prosecutor Robert Brown said Kemani Duggan can then be seen picking up a mannequin and throwing it at Carvalho.

“The video appears to show that Bryan Carvalho has a knife in his right hand,” he told the court.

A member of the group attempts to separate the brothers from the other defendants, before Best is seen running toward Carvalho with a rope.

Mr Brown said Best was “holding a rope that he has picked up” and is seen “swinging that rope towards Mr Carvalho”.

He told the court Deer delivered a powerful “flying kick” to his rival as the violence moved from the shop floor to a corridor leading to the toilets.

He said that Deer, Knox-Hooke-Campbell and Marlon Duggan then allegedly kicked Carvalho after he fell to the ground.

Lindsay is then said to have been seen “slashing” at him with a knife.

The pair then allegedly continued taking swipes at each other with their weapons during the high-speed scuffle.

Both Lindsay and Carvalho were treated for stab wounds in their leg at the Whittington Hospital.

Jurors heard a trail of blood was found by police from the scene of one of the stabbings to the second-floor carpark.

Officers then also recovered a discarded knife.

The incident broke out in front of horrified Selfridges customers who were left watching on in horror after attempting to intervene.

Mr Brown said: “This was a completely unnecessary outbreak of violence between two groups, in an otherwise crowded public place – Selfridges store.

“There were plenty of escape routes for anyone who wished to avoid the violence, and plenty of staff if anyone needed assistance.

“The violence that followed was completely unlawful and unacceptable, and certainly didn’t need to involve the use of knives.”

“Members of the public were in fear for their own safety because of the actions of these defendants.”

Carvalho and Lindsay are both accused of wounding with intent and having an article with a blade or a point.

Kemani Duggan, his uncle, Marlon, Deer, Best and Knox-Hooke-Campbell are all accused of violent disorder.

Lindsay is not in the dock and has been declared unfit to stand trial after undergoing psychiatric assessments.

Police identified the defendants from the clothing they were wearing when they were arrested leaving Selfridges, or in the cases of Carvalho and Lindsay when they were being treated for their wounds.

Marlon Duggan, Knox-Hooke-Campbell, and Best, all from Tottenham, Kemani Duggan, from Highbury, Carvalho, from Bounds Green, and Deer, from Borehamwood, all deny the charges against them.

The trial continues.
