Having been told that Petru-Sorin had been punched in the head during an altercation the previous day, paramedics alerted the police.

Detective Inspector Jack Stilwell, leading the investigation, said: “The past few months have been extremely challenging for Petru-Sorin’s family and friends. While it has been clear for some time that his injuries were extensive, his death has understandably been very difficult for them to come to terms with.

“Our investigation has determined that on the night of 17 December, shortly before 21:00hrs, Petru-Sorin was with two friends near the Job Centre in St John’s Road, Wembley.

“They were approached by an unknown male. There was an altercation and Petru-Sorin was assaulted sustaining the injuries that led to him being hospitalised the following day.

“We have carried out extensive enquiries and have released a CCTV image of a man we want to speak to about this incident. I urge anyone who recognises the man in the picture to come forward.”

Police have asked anyone that knows the man in the image, or May have information about the incident to call on 101or Tweet @MetCC quoting 2254/18Dec21.
