At about 00:01 hr on Friday the 26 July, members of the public called the police to Lancefield Street, W10 over the stabbing of a 20-year-old man.

The man was reportedly stabbed in the leg.

He was rushed to the hospital by the London Ambulance Service where it has since been confirmed that his wound was not life-threatening.

The detectives are currently trying to investigate the links between the two incidents.

The police believed there might be a link between the fight that broke out in NW8 at 17: 00hrs, five hours before the stabbing.

The incident took place at the entrance to South Hamstead Rail Station on Loudon Road.

Several people were reportedly injured but there was no report of life-threatening incidents.

Speaking on the issue, the Detective Chief Inspector Simon Stancombe from the Met’s Specialist Crime team said he hoped the release of the victim’s image would assist in getting information from the general public

He appealed to the general public to come forward and assist the police with any information, particularly the altercation at South Hampstead station.

He said “In releasing Abdullahi’s image we hope it may remind someone of seeing him or his killers’ at the scene and that their information may help to bring justice for Abdullahi’s family who now has to deal with his loss.

“Whilst I am appealing for any information, I am specifically keen to hear about what happened at the earlier altercation at South Hampstead station. It was during rush hour on the hottest day of the year. Were you in the area? Did you see the fight or hear what was happening?

“Please contact us and tell us what you saw; if you are worried about speaking to police, please be assured that we can work with you in the utmost confidence and sensitivity. We need your help to piece together the events of that day.”

The police say it has arrested five men between the age of 20 and 23 years on the suspicion of attempted murder.
