The first image of a 22-year-old man stabbed to loss of life close to a London market has been revealed by police, as a homicide investigation into his tragic loss of life continues.

Met Police officers have been referred to as at round 6pm yesterday night to experiences of a person who had been stabbed in Fellmongers Yard, Croydon, south London.

Quite a few members of the general public tried to supply first assist, earlier than police, London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance arrived on the scene.

Despite their efforts, the person was later pronounced lifeless on the scene. His household has been knowledgeable and the sufferer has been recognized as Rijkaard Salu Siafa from Croydon. Specialist officers proceed to help Rijkaard’s household.

A 20-year-old man was arrested on the scene on suspicion of homicide and stays in custody, whereas one eyewitness instructed the Independent that they noticed two masked males driving collectively on a motorcycle with one “waving a machete”.

Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Lee from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command leads the investigation and stated: “Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Rijkaard’s family and friends who are coming to terms with his death following this shocking incident. This loss has ripped an irreparable hole in their family and I would ask their privacy is respected at this difficult time.

“I would also like to thank those members of the public who rushed help Rijkaard in the immediate aftermath. If you saw events unfold but have yet to contact police, then I would ask you do so immediately.

“Local residents will continue to see an increased police presence around the area of Fellmongers Yard – if you have any concerns, please speak to one of them.”
