Man dies following stabbing

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police are appealing for information and witnesses following a fatal stabbing.

Police were called at approximately 10:50pm on Tuesday (18 June) to reports of a fight in Welbeck Road, Barnet.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found three men suffering stab injuries.

A 38-year-old man was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital – where he sadly died shortly after midnight.

The two other men – aged 25 and 34 – were also taken to hospital for treatment; their injuries are not being treated as life threatening.

The Homicide and Major Crime Command led by Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge are investigating.

Superintendent Tim Alexander, North West Command Unit said: “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this very difficult time. This is such a tragic loss of life and we urge anyone with information to come forward.

“The information you provide can be used to great effect to not only detect, but also prevent crime.

“We are working closely with the Homicide and Major Crime Command as part of their ongoing investigation into the full circumstances.”

“I know residents and the wider community in the area will be concerned not only with this incident but the violent incidents that have occurred in London in recent days. We are conducting high visibility patrols and would encourage those from the local community to speak with officers about concerns they have or anything that they saw that could be of assistance.

“If you aren’t comfortable speaking directly to the police, please contact the independent charity Crimestoppers via 0800 555 111. They do not ask your name or trace your call.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact the HMCC on their incident room number of 0208 358 0300 or call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD8638/18June.
