Although the Met Police have yet to formally confirm the victim, Detective Inspector Beverley Kofi said:

“This is another tragic murder with a young male victim who has met a violent death… We believe that the incident started Ollgar House, in Ollgar Close and the victim was assaulted and stabbed before staggering and collapsing in Old Oak Road. We believe there were a number of people involved, but we are still working to establish the circumstances and a possible motive.”

Two men, aged 27 and 28, have been arrested with possible connections to the crime.

Edtya Pustelny — the wife of a witness — told the LES:

“My husband was walking our child home from school. They walked past three teenage boys who were shouting and ran past the garages… The three boys were then pinning a guy up against a garage and holding him by the neck… They were shouting they were going to kill him. My husband said he heard them shouting to give them something. It sounded like they wanted something from him.”

Upon hearing the news, fellow model Jourdan Dunn wrote on Twitter:


R.I.P. Harry.
