Man Murdered In Brentford

A murder inquiry is underway following a stabbing in Brentford.

Police were called to the scene around 1am on Sunday 28 November by the ambulance service to reports of two men stabbed at the junction of New Road and Hamilton Road, Brentford.

It is believed that the two friends were involved in an altercation with two other men during which they were stabbed. The other men who ran off are described as white and aged in their late 20s/early 30s.

A 33 year old man suffered multiple stab wounds to the abdomen, and a 31 year old man suffered stab wounds to the back.

The 33 year old was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed, but formal identification is yet to take place. A post-mortem will be held on today at Fulham mortuary.

The 31 year old was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting where he was treated and discharged.

An incident room has opened at Sutton under Detective Inspector (DI) John McQuade of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command.

DI McQuade said: "At this stage we must retain an open mind regarding the circumstances of the altercation and any motive.

"We need to speak to anyone who may have seen the incident or can shed any light on the circumstances."

Around 11am yesterday morning two men, 32 years and 27 years, attended separate police stations in west London and were arrested on suspicion of murder. They remain in custody.
