A 26-year-old man was attacked with a knife in Colindale, north London, just before 6pm on Sunday and a woman in her 30s was stabbed to death in Brixton, south London, shortly after 6.30pm.

A woman, also in her 20s, who knew the victim, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Paramedics and London's Air Ambulance were called to Chestnut Avenue, Forest Gate, at about 10.50pm on Monday but they were unable to save the male victim.

A cordon remains at the scene and police on Tuesday urged anyone with information on the incident to come forward.

The teenager was pronounced dead at the scene just over half an hour later.

Two people were stabbed in separate incidents on the same block in the Mission over the weekend, police have reported.

So far no one has been arrested in connection with the stabbing.

Dihan was wanted in several cases, including murder, snatching and extortion, lodged with Kotwali Police Station, the OC said.

It is believed the victim and suspect were known to each other.

Police said his family were still being informed and that formal identification and a post-mortem would be arranged.

London's murder rate has risen 40 per cent in only three years, and was higher than the homicide rate in NY for the first time in history in February of this year.
