Man Stabbed To Death In North London Days Before Christmas

Officers are appealing for information after the "senseless" killing.

A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed to death in north London.

The victim, believed to be aged in his 20s, was found with knife injuries when police were called to Albert Place in Haringey at about 1.20am on Saturday morning.

He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead 55 minutes later.

No arrests have been made and Scotland Yard detectives are trying to identify the victim. A post-mortem examination is yet to take place.

Detective Chief Inspector Glen Lloyd said: “We’re in the early stages of the investigation and at this stage we are working hard to piece together the chain of events that led to a young man losing his life.

“Only days before Christmas, a life has been senselessly taken and my team will work tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice as soon as possible.

“I am appealing to anyone with information, no matter how insignificant they think it may be, to come forward and speak to police. If there is a reluctance to speak to police, you can of course contact Crimestoppers anonymously.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting CAD 503/December 22, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
