#AceNewsReport: Feb.06: Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene and found a 22-year-old suffering a stab injury. Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 21:09hrs: Officers were also informed that a male – no further details – had suffered a stab wound during the incident but had been taken to hospital prior to police arrival. His condition is not life threatening and his next of kin are aware:

Murder investigation launched in Croydon: Police were called at approximately 20:10hrs on Friday, 5 February following an incident at a residential address in Wisbeach Road, SE25

His next of kin have been informed and a post mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin Thorpe from Specialist Crime said: “We know that a group of males attended the address and an altercation occurred which resulted in the victim receiving a fatal stab injury: “ I would ask any local residents who saw or heard anything shortly after 8pm on Friday evening to contact police; no matter how insignificant you think your information might be, it could help us piece together what happened: “ I am aware that this was one of a number of violent incidents in and around the south London area on Friday evening but there is nothing to connect these incidents together at this time: “ A young man has lost his life in a senseless act of violence, leaving his family devastated. If you can help us find who is responsible for this attack, then I would urge you to get in touch immediately.”

Following this incident, there will be an increased police presence in and around the local area. If you have any concerns, please speak to one of them or dial 101.

Anyone with information that can assist this investigation is asked to contact 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD7236/5Feb.
