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 12:05pm on Monday, 26 February to Hamilton Crescent in 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.
