Police make further appeal for witnesses following death in West Ealing

A murder investigation continues following the death of a man in west London.

Police were called at around 19:50hrs on Saturday, 6 April, to a disturbance and a man stabbed in Uxbridge Road at the junction with Singapore Road, West Ealing.

Officers attended along with ambulance colleagues. They found a critically injured 39-year-old man. Despite the efforts of emergency services, the man sadly died at the scene.

DCI Laura Nelson, Specialist Crime, is leading the Met’s investigation. She said: “This senseless murder arose from what appears to have been a minor dispute inside a pub. The dispute spilled outside where the victim was fatally stabbed.

“Although formal identification has yet to take place, we believe we know the man’s identity and have informed his family. I send my most sincere condolences to them.

“It is crucial that anyone who was in the pub on Saturday night who may have seen anything significant makes contact with police and tells us what they saw. I also need to hear from anyone who recorded mobile phone footage which may have captured the disturbance, the build up to it or the aftermath.

“Police cordons will remain in place well into Monday, 8 April, and possibly beyond. These will include parts of Uxbridge Road / The Broadway in West Ealing.

“Specialist officers are conducting a full forensic examination of the scene, working alongside local officers and other specialists from across the Met. This work will take some time, and I thank local people for their patience.”

Three people were arrested near to the scene in connection with the investigation. They have been released with no further action.

Any witnesses or anyone with information are asked to call 101, ref 6624/06apr. To remain anonymous, please contact the independent charity Crimestoppers.
