Kamal Nuur was killed last month

DETECTIVES investigating the murder of teenager Kamal Nuur have made two arrests.

The 18-year-old was found dying from stab injuries in North Road on September 14.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to come forward. Today (Tuesday), a male suspect, 18, and a female, 17, were held on suspicion of murder.

Both were taken to a police station for questionning. Searches are ongoing at a number of addresses across London.

Police believe that Kamal was chased and attacked in Goodinge Close, just off North Road.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge, leading the investigation, said: “Kamal’s death has shocked the local community, he was a young man who was brutally attacked. His family are devastated and struggling to come to terms with why he was targeted.

“While we have had great assistance from the public to date, I believe some people who are yet to come forward hold key information about the murder and we continue to appeal for help to identify two males captured on CCTV fleeing the scene on a bicycle.”


Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call the incident room on 0208 358 033 or 101 ref CAD 7154/14Sep.
