A Brentford teenager has been named as boy stabbed to death in Isleworth last week.

Police were called at about 10.30pm on Friday, March 22, to reports that a teenager had been stabbed near flats in Union Lane.

On arrival, officers discovered that the victim had been stabbed outside the flats.

London Ambulance Service were also called but despite their efforts, the victim died at the scene a short time later.

Police have now named the victim as 17-year-old Abdirashid Mohamoud from Brentford.

A post-mortem was held on Sunday at Uxbridge Mortuary where it was established that Abdirashid had died from stab injuries.

An investigation is underway by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command led by Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard.

DCI Leonard said: "Our enquiries have established that the victim was in Syon Park close to the flats with a group of other people.

"A vehicle pulled up and a group of males got out. They chased the victim and attacked him in Union Lane.

"I need to speak to anyone who was in the park or the surrounding area at around 10.30pm on Friday night or who has information that could assist this investigation. They should get in touch immediately."

At this early stage, officers retain an open mind as to the motive.
