The Metropolitan Police say they are looking for two men in connection with the murder of a man in West London.
Tony Charlery, of Earls Court Road, died on Portobello Road, Notting Hill, at about 12:45am on Saturday (August 30th).
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the neck, and police said he received the fatal wound as he tried to run away from his attackers.
The murder investigation is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall, of the Homicide & Major Crime Command, who said she believes the "two suspects" are local men and she is appealing to the community for help.
DCI Wall said: "On Friday 29 August, Tony went alone to the Mau Mau bar in Portobello Road W11. He was only inside the venue for a short while and was stabbed as he left. Tony received the fatal wound as he tried to run away from his attackers.
"I appeal to anyone who knows the identity of the persons involved to call detectives. Tony was a local man and a much loved grandfather. His family are devastated by his death in such a brutal way.
"As I believe the two suspects to be local men, I especially appeal to the Notting Hill community for help."
