A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering 22-year-old Deptford man Shevaun Sorrell who was stabbed to death on Saturday.

The 36-years-old suspect is in custody in a south London station, and officers are continuing to appeal for information and witnesses to come forward – including any possible footage of the attack.

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Norman said: “We may have made an arrest in this investigation but we are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.

“I know members of the public saw police officers and the London Ambulance Service giving aid to the victim at the scene.

“The people I want to hear from are those who may have seen an altercation between two males or a group of males beforehand but may not have realised what had happened.

“We are also appealing to people who may have CCTV or dash cam footage of the incident to come forward.

“Think carefully; were you in the area around this time?

“Did you see anyone running from the scene or anyone who looked panicked?

“I would urge you to contact us with what you know as quickly as possible.”

The victim, named as Shevaun Sorrell, was found by police with stab injuries on the junction of Creek Road and Deptford Church Street by officers shortly before midnight on Saturday, August 25.

A post-mortem examination held yesterday at Greenwich Mortuary established his cause of death as a stab wound to the chest.

Anyone with information should contact police on 020 8721 4005 or 101 quoting CAD7831/25AUG.
