Police have released a picture of the 27-year-old man who was stabbed to death in Peckham on Friday (December 17).

Detectives are urging the public to come forward with information about the fatal stabbing of Jobari Gooden, which took place in a busy shopping area on Friday afternoon.

Officers rushed to reports of a fight outside House of Ramish 2 barber’s on Choumert Road, SE15, at around 3.15pm on Friday, police said.

Jobari was rushed to hospital suffering with stab wounds, but was pronounced dead at just past 6pm last night.

Police have confirmed his family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers. Specialist Crime Command are now leading a murder investigation.

The incident took place in the middle of a parade of shops in the afternoon and detectives therefore believe it is likely to have been witnessed by a significant number of people.

They have launched an onlineportal to allow members of the public to submit evidence and are encouraging anyone who saw the fight, the stabbing or anyone who has other information about what took place to come forward.

There is also the option to provide evidence anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers by phone or online.

In a desperate plea to the public, Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, the senior investigating officer, said: “My thoughts, first and foremost, are with Jobari’s family.

“We will continue to offer them every support. This attack took place in the early afternoon and in the middle of Peckham Rye.

“We know the area was busy, with people going to the shops or the market. I expect that many people saw the fight, the knife that was used and the subsequent fatal attack.

“We desperately need those people to come forward.”

He noted that while they appreciated giving evidence would be “daunting” it could help bring “justice”.

“Our officers are experienced and will treat any information sensitively,” he said. “If you know anything that could help us, please make that call or go online and tell us what you know.”
