South Harrow fatal stabbing victim named by police

Police investigating a fatal stabbing in Harrow are appealing for dash cam footage.

Robert Weston, 37, of Harrow, died following an incident on Monday 26 February, and a murder investigation is underway.

Superintendent Matt Cray, who leads policing in Harrow, said: “This is a devastating incident and our thoughts are with Robert’s family and loved ones.

“We remain in the early stages of our investigation, however I am confident there is no wider risk to the community in Harrow.

“This will have a significant impact on how the community feels about their safety and there will be enhanced patrols in the area over the next few days to respond to any concerns people may have.

“The team of detectives who are investigating Robert’s death are working hard to establish what happened, and I would ask that anyone who has not yet come forward with information, which could help their enquiries, does so without delay.”

Police were called at approximately 14:05hrs on Monday, 26 February to Hamilton Crescent, South Harrow with reports that a man in his 30s had been stabbed.

Officers, medics from London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended and attempted to save the man’s life.

Very sadly, he was pronounced dead at the scene. Although formal identification is yet to take place, Robert Weston’s family were informed and they will continue to receive support from specially trained officers.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John is leading the enquiries, he said: “This was a terrible incident and my condolences are with the victim’s loved ones.

“We believe that the assault took place inside a house and enquiries are ongoing to determine how Robert came to lose his life.

“At this time, I am interested to hear from anyone who was travelling in Hamilton Crescent or the Kingsway around the time of the offence, and who may have dash cam footage to share.

“This would have been between the times of 13:45hrs and 14:15hrs on Monday 26 February.

“Even if you didn’t see anything significant, your dash cam footage may tell a different story, so please do contact my team of detectives.”

No arrests have been made at this stage and a crime scene remains in place.
