Police make another arrest in Andover Estate murder investigation

A further arrest has been made by police investigating the murder of 21-year-old Andrew Jaipaul.

He was repeatedly knifed in the attack by a group of between 12 and 20 men on the Andover Estate, off Hornsey Road, Holloway, at around 10.30pm on Sunday, June 26.

Mr Jaipaul, who lived in nearby Birnham Road which backs on to the scene, died at the scene and a post mortem gave the cause of death as multiple incised stab wounds.

Police have already arrested 15 men aged between 13 and 21 on suspicion of murder and they have been bailed until early August pending further inquiries. The latest arrest involved an 18 year old who was taken to a north London police station where he remains in custody.
