Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was stabbed to death in a block of flats in Wembley this morning (12 September).

Police were called at 10.07hrs on Saturday, 12 September to Priestley House, Barnhill Road, to reports of a man injured.

Officers attended and the victim, believed to be aged in his 60s, who had been stabbed multiple times, was given immediate first aid until paramedics from London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin are in the process of being located and informed.

While efforts were made to save the life of the victim, a man who was believed to be the suspect, barricaded himself into an address.

After a period of negotiation the man refused to comply with officers’ instructions, and Taser was deployed.

The man, aged 45, was detained safely and arrested on suspicion of murder – he remains in custody. It is believed the victim and suspect were known to each other.

Homicide detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command have been informed and enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.
