Kamal Nuur was killed on September 14

Detectives investigating the murder of teenager Kamal Nuur have made two further arrests and have made a fresh appeal for witnesses to come forward.

Today (Wednesday) a 21-year-old male was arrested at an address in Peterborough. He was arrested for assisting an offender in relation to the murder of Kamal Nuur and for possession with intent to supply drugs. He is currently at a police station in Cambridgeshire.

Another male suspect, aged 17, was arrested on suspicion of murder last Saturday when he voluntarily attended Kentish Town Police Station. He was released on bail the next day to return on a date next month for further enquiries.

Kamal, 18, was found dying from stab injuries in North Road on September 14.

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

Officers arrested a male suspect, 20 and a female suspect, 17, on suspicion of murder on October 6.

Both were released on bail to return on a date in mid-November.

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.

“We are determined to identify and apprehend everyone involved in this attack. There should be no hiding place for people who plan and carry out such appalling acts of violence.

“Any information can be provided in the strictest confidence and can even be give anonymously via Crimestoppers. If you can help please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

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