Two teenagers have been charged with murder following the death of an Enfield man in Finchley on Monday (14th).

Yusuf Mohamoud died after police were called to reports of a stabbing in Regents Park Road shortly after 9.30pm. The 18-year-old was treated by paramedics but died at the scene. A post-mortem yesterday (Wednesday 15th) confirmed he died as a result of a stab wound.

The two 15-year-old boys – who cannot be named because of their age – were charged. They were due to appear in custody at Willesden Youth Court yesterday.

However, police believe there were others involved and are calling on witnesses to come forward. Detective Chief Inspector Neil Rawlinson, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have made good progress and this is a significant development, however our investigation continues and we are still working to locate a third suspect.

“With that in mind, I would reiterate my appeal to anyone who was in the area of Regent’s Park Road, near to the junction with Lichfield Grove, and who witnessed the events that led to the attack on Yusuf, to get in touch.

“I’m specifically keen to talk to anyone who was in the area between 9pm and 10pm on Monday, 7th August.

“Another young man has died as a result of violence and we need the public’s help to ensure Yusuf’s family get the justice they deserve.”

Anyone who can help the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 7779/07Aug. You can also report information online and tweet @MetCC. To remain anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
