Man stabbed to death in Wembley

Met Police are appealing for information after a man was found with fatal stab injuries in Wembley.

Police were called at 9:49pm on Monday, 17 July to reports of a man in his 40s with a stab injury in the Dene, Wembley.

Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance all attended. Despite the efforts of the emergency services, the man died at the scene.

The investigation is being led by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
Detective Chief Inspector Linda Bradley, leading the investigation, said: “First and foremost, my thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at what is an incredibly difficult time.

“At present we believe the man sustained his injuries in King Edward VII park and then made his way to the Dene, where residents discovered him and called the emergency services.

“I am really keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything out of the ordinary in the park and surrounding areas on Monday 17 July between 9pm and 10pm. Please do not hesitate to get in touch, no matter how insignificant you may think your information to be- it could be the key to our investigation.”

Police also confirmed that two men and a woman were arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and have been released on bail to return at a future date.

A crime scene remains in place at the location and surrounding areas including Kind Edward VII park where the initial incident is believed to have taken place.

Anyone with any information that could help the investigation should call police on 101 and give reference 8258/17JUL23.
