A man 'got out of a vehicle' and knifed the victim, police said.

Detectives investigating the murder of a woman have arrested two men.

The victim, in her 30s, was stabbed to death in the street in Ewell, Surrey, at about 3pm on Friday.

A man “got out of a vehicle” and knifed her, police said.

One man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and another on suspicion of assisting an offender, Surrey Police said.

It is believed the woman and her alleged killer knew each other.

Chief Inspector Michael Hodder said: “This was a tragic and shocking incident in which a woman has lost her life after being attacked in broad daylight.

“Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.

“At this stage we believe the victim and suspect are known to each other.”

Police said the woman was attacked in London Road but the arrests did not happen at the scene.

Hodder added: “We realise there will be a number of questions about what has happened, which we will try to answer when we can and would ask the public not to speculate.

“We have a number of officers in the area to both investigate and support the community following this attack which we believe would have been witnessed by a number of people.

“If you did witness what happened and haven’t already spoken to officers, or may have dashcam footage, I would urge you to do so immediately, by calling 101 and quoting the reference number PR/P19030779.”
