This is the first picture of Ali Al Har, who was stabbed to death in Tufnell Park last week.
It comes after Abdirahman Abdulahi, 24, of Brecknock Road, yesterday appeared in court charged with murdering Mr Al Har in Corinne Road on September 18. He was charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon on Saturday.
Kyron Samuels, of Atwell Place, Oxford, was charged with assisting an offender, and was also due in court yesterday.
Mr Al Har, 25, was the fourth person to be stabbed to death on Islington’s streets this year.
Brett Thompson, 63, of Corinne Road, tried to save Mr Al Har after he was knifed in the leg.
The former solider told the Gazette: “There were three of us trying to stop the bleeding. Blood was pouring out of his femoral artery.
“He had lost about four pints. It was everywhere.
“I asked him his name and he said ‘my name is Ali and I’m from Wembley’, in between screaming ‘I’m dying’.
“It’s so sad – he was only a young man.”
A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: “A man aged 25 was found suffering from a stab wound. Officers immediately provided first aid.
“The victim was pronounced dead at the scene at 10.07pm.
“His next-of-kin have been informed. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course – enquiries continue.”
Abdulahi and Samuels have both been remanded in custody until October 22.
