Barnet stabbing: three arrested after murder of man in north London


Three people have been arrested after a 30-year-old man was stabbed to death in north London on Wednesday morning.

Two men aged 33 and 25 and a woman aged 24 were arrested on Saturday 14 May on suspicion of murder. The men are still in custody while the woman has been released on bail until mid-June.

Officers were called to a flat on Whetstone’s High Road in Barnet shortly before 3 a.m. and found the victim with stab wounds.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, his life could not be saved and a short time later he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers are in contact with his family and are supporting them, police said.

A 35-year-old man who was initially arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing was later released without further action against him.

Neighbors in the leafy suburb of north London had spoken of their shock after the incident.

One told the Standard: “The first time we knew dozens of police arrived. We heard screams and ambulances arrived. It’s sleepy and a fairly wealthy neighborhood here. It’s a total shock.”

Another said: “Things like this never happen here. It’s so strange. I saw the police coming, I had no idea it was a murder.”

Officers continue to call on anyone with information about the murder to come forward by calling 101 at the identification number 655/11MAY or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555 111.
