Petts Wood murder investigation after teenager stabbed to death in park | UK News

A teenage boy has been stabbed to death in southeast London, with police now pleading with witnesses to come forward.

The 19-year-old was injured in Jubilee Park, close to Tent Peg Lane in Petts Wood at about 2.30pm on Wednesday.

An air ambulance was called, but he died at the scene. A post-mortem examination yesterday revealed his cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

His family has been informed but his name has not yet been released by police.

Detective Chief Inspector Laura Semple said: “This investigation continues at pace and we are making progress in piecing together the events that led to this young man losing his life.

“However, we need the help of the public.

“I would ask anyone who was in the park area and who saw the events leading up to this attack to come forward and speak to police.

“I am especially keen to hear from people who may have captured events on camera or taken images that could assist our work.”
