Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or use Twitter quoting reference CAD3184/04SEP.

It comes as two men were arrested over a separate stabbing in North London just days prior.

Yahye Ahmed, 23, was stabbed to death in Axminster Road, Islington on August 30.

A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John said: "These arrests overnight are a significant development and we are keeping Yahye's family informed.

"I would still encourage anyone who has information, or who witnessed the events of that morning to contact police."
