Police have launched a murder investigation after a 23-year-old man stabbed in broad daylight in Bermondsey sadly died today.

Police and ambulance crews were called to a residential address in Lucey Way at about 6.17pm on Monday, June 11, to reports of a man suffering stab injuries.

The victim was taken to hospital and was said to be in a critical but stable condition last week but was sadly pronounced dead at 11.20am today, Monday.

It has today emerged that police believe an “altercation involving a group of males” began outside Helen Taylor House, in Linsey Street.

Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell, who is leading the investigation, said: “The victim then took shelter at an address on Lucey Way after being attacked.

“We know there were a large number of people in the vicinity at the time of the attack and I am appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

“Any information will be treated with the strictest of confidence.”

The man’s next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem is scheduled to take place.

He has not yet been named by police but was described locally as a 23-year-old man from a “nice family” who “never causes any trouble and is always willing to help”.
