Man, 29, is fatally stabbed in North London as cops arrest 10 men in connection with his death

TEN men have been arrested after a 29-year-old man was fatally stabbed in north London.

A murder investigation has been launched after officers raced to High Road, Whetstone following reports of a fight at around 10:24pm on June 17.

They found the victim suffering from multiple knife wounds before he was taken to a hospital in the north-west of the capital in critical condition.

His "distraught family" were at his bedside when he passed away at around 11:15pm two days later, police said, and are now being supported by specialist officers.

In the wake of the incident, five men – aged 27, 28, and three males aged 29 – were arrested on suspicion of affray on Friday.

They were later released on bail.

The following day, a further five men – aged 27, 33, 35, 55 and 54 respectively – were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

They were later all released either on bail or under investigation.

Officers believe the incident was filmed by "at least one person" on their mobile phone.

The Met have urged any witnesses or anyone with mobile, dash-cam, or doorbell footage to come forward.

The investigation is now being led by detectives in the Met's Specialist Crime Command.

Detective Inspector Jonathan Newell said: "Our investigation is fast-paced and progressing quickly. We have made a substantial number of arrests but there is still much more work to do.

"The public can help us. I believe there was at least one person who filmed this incident on their mobile phone. I need those people to contact us – it is imperative that we know everything about the events that led up to it."

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD8736/17JUN.
