Detectives have launched a murder inquiry following a stabbing incident in Tower Hamlets.

Police were called at around 8pm on Sunday, 5th May to reports of a fight on Corfield Street, E2.

Upon arrival, officers found a man with a stab wound. Despite the efforts of officers and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service, the 38-year-old man sadly died at the scene.

Efforts are underway to inform the man’s family, and formal identification is yet to be completed.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course.

Superintendent Alex Ogilvie, one of the senior officers responsible for policing in Tower Hamlets, said: “I understand the impact this violent incident will have on the local community, particularly as it occurred in a residential street while many people would have been at home.

“We will be supporting our colleagues in the Specialist Crime Command with their investigation, and you can expect to see officers in the area over the coming days. I encourage you to speak with them about anything you saw or heard, as well as any concerns you may have.”

At this early stage, there have been no arrests, and enquiries continue.

A crime scene remains in place.

Anyone with information or dashcam, doorbell, or mobile phone footage is asked to call the police via 101, quoting reference CAD 6482/05May. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
