Suspects fleeing down North Road

Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old have released CCTV images of two suspects fleeing the scene on a bicycle.

Kamal Nuur, 18, was found suffering with stab wounds just off North Road, Holloway, at about 8pm on Monday September 14 by police responding to 999 calls.

It is understood that Mr Nuur was chased and attacked in Goodinge Close by two male suspects who then fled in the direction of York Way.

CCTV images show the suspects in North Road at 7:58pm on Monday, 14 September cycling towards York Way after the attack. The suspects are cycling at speed and continue into York Way and Brecknock Road. They head towards Leighton Road and travel on the footway at speed.

DCI Andy Partridge said: “These images are significant as we piece together the events that led to the attack on Kamal. He suffered horrific injuries in the attack that took place and was set upon for no apparent reason.

“I believe the public can assist in not only telling us where these suspects were heading to, but also someone will know who they are. Such grotesque, brazen acts of violence cannot be acceptable, anyone providing information can have the assurance it will be held in the strictest confidence.

“Those responsible do not deserve any protection; Kamal’s family are shocked at his death and will never come to terms with losing him in such a violent way’.

Mr Nuur was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem conducted on September 17 confirmed that Mr Nuur died as a result of stab wounds inflicted in the attack.

Detectives from the Specialist Crime North Command are investigating.

At this time there have been no arrests.

Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call the incident room on 0208 358 033 or 101 ref CAD 7154/14 Sept.
