Police have renewed an appeal for witnesses after a teenager was fatally stabbed in Walthamstow.

The 17-year-old boy was found suffering from a stab wound, at around 9.20pm on Friday, 23 October, in Westbury Road.

He was treated by paramedics but was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers believe they have established the male’s identity and have informed his next of kin.

Formal identification awaits. A post-mortem examination is due to take place today.

No arrests have been made.

An investigation, led by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command (Homicide), is underway.

Met Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Inspector Joanna Yorke said: “Another teenager has died on the streets of London in violent circumstances and we are doing all we can to help his devastated family.

“A dedicated specialist officer is supporting them as they begin to come to terms with this terrible loss. I can only imagine what they are feeling at this time and our thoughts are with them.

“Our team are working 24/7 to establish the full circumstances around the incident.

“If you saw or heard anything suspicious or were in the area at the time, no matter how insignificant it might seem, it is imperative that you contact us so we can provide the answers that the victim’s devastated family are now searching for.”

“Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting 8357/23Oct.

“We know that calling to give information on knife crime is difficult, but your call could help save lives. When you get in touch with Crimestoppers, you have the power to speak up and stop crime, 100% anonymously. Find out more here.”
