Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of 18-year-old Kamal Nuur in Cally have made two arrests as they continue to appeal for anyone with information to come forward.

Kamal was found suffering from stab wounds in North Road just after 8pm on September 14, and died at the scene despite the best efforts of paramedics who treated him there.

A post-mortem confirmed Kamal died because of stab wounds inflicted in the attack.

Officers arrested an 18-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl on suspicion of murder yesterday.

Both were taken to a north London police station, and searches are ongoing at several addresses across London, according to Scotland Yard.

Police believe Kamal was chased and attacked nearby in Goodinge Close, by two male suspects who then fled on a bike towards York Way.

Det Ch Insp Andy Partridge, who is leading the investigation, said: “Kamal’s death has shocked the local community.
