DETECTIVES are appealing for information after a man was allegedly stabbed to death in the street in Walthamstow on Monday.
The victim flagged down by a police van containing three officers in Ulverston Road, near the junction of Forest Road, at about 5pm.
The man, who was aged in his 30s, was suffering from stab wounds. The officers gave first aid until the London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance arrived.
However, despite their best efforts, the man died at the scene.
Police are not revealing the identity of the victim until his next of kin has been informed.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remained in custody without charge at the time of going to press.
The incident caused traffic problems in the area as police carried out an extensive evidence finding operation. A spokesman for the Met said: “We do regret any inconvenience caused, however, the primary concern was for that of the victim.
“The man had flagged down a passing police car and had obviously walked some distance, which all became part of what was a very large crime scene.
“We had to keep that area cordoned off for some time to allow for the maximum collection of forensic evidence.”
Since the incident on Monday, officers have carried out reassurance patrols in the area, as well as leaflet drops and a briefing to local people explaining the procedure police have had to go through.
Anyone with information should call the Met on 101, or if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
