Detectives investigating the murder of a teenage boy in Barking in 2017 have released CCTV footage of suspects they would like to identify. 

Joshua Bwalya, 16, was stabbed by a group of young people on pedal cycles at the junction of Movers Lane and Ripple Road during the early hours of 2 August 2017. He died at the scene. 

Officers have made several arrests over the last four years but no one has ever been brought to justice for his murder.

“This was a cowardly and brutal attack on a young boy who had his whole life ahead of him. We know Joshua was pursued by a group of young people on pedal cycles before being cornered and repeatedly stabbed,” said Detective Chief Inspector Perry Benton.

“Over the past four years have made a number of arrests in this case but we still need the public’s help to bring Joshua’s killers to justice. Somebody out there will have the information we need and I would urge them to do the right thing and come forward.”

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to contact police on 020 8345 157. 

Alternatively, call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
