A young man succumbed to death after sustaining severe knife injuries in the late hours of Monday in Islington, north London.
Kamal Nuur was “brazenly” stabbed on the 14th of September. When detectives arrived at the scene in North Road, Islington at 8 pm, the 18-year-old was already battling for his life following the fatal stabbing.
Despite all the efforts which were made by the paramedics, the youngster was pronounced dead at the scene. After post mortem examination it was confirmed that the teenager died as a result of the severe stab injuries.
Two male suspects pursued and attacked Kamal in Gooding Close, just off North Road. Scotland Yard said the pair ran off towards York Way soon after the incident. Currently, no one knows the whereabouts of the two men.
Detectives have released CCTV footage showing the two in North Road at 7:58 pm the same night of the attack and then cycling ultrafast towards York Way. The pair dashed towards Leighton Road and cycled at speed along the footway.
Following a chase and fight which lasted for less than a minute, a witness said she tried to save Kamal while he was still breathing.
The woman said: “I heard a ruckus, then a cry of ‘help me help me’. There was a young man laying on the ground. I went out with other neighbours, he was still breathing. We tried to comfort him. His friend was with him shouting ‘raise your hand if you can hear me’. He was not conscious. The paramedics arrived very quickly then loads of police.
Detectives asked anyone with information to call the force incident room on 0208 358 033 or 101 referencing CAD 7154 of September 14, upload images to the police website, or call Crimestoppers anonymously.
Kamal`s fatal stabbing was London`s fifth murder in as many days, highlighting the need for police officers to act immediately and take measures to prevent such events.
