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.”

A police spokesperson added: “Detectives continue to appeal for witnesses and information about the incident.
