Man Stabbed After Fight In Croydon

A 24-year-old man has died after he was stabbed during a fight in south London.

Met Police were called to Cromwell Road at around 4:45pm yesterday (Tuesday August 26) following reports of a fight involving a group of men.

Officers found Adrian Young injured on Whitehorse Road. He was taken to hospital where he died two hours later.

Speaking after the attack, Detective Inspector John McQuade said: "We believe that the stabbing took place following an altercation that had been going on in the area since earlier this afternoon, although we retain an open mind regarding the cause of this dispute.

"I would urge anyone who can help us to piece together events to come forward and contact police as soon as possible."

No arrests have been made.
