Case synopsis:

Patrick Oyeri, 29, was stabbed to death in Hounslow on 4 September 2017.

Police were called to reports of a fight between two groups in Rosebery Road at around 3.35pm.

Mr Oyeri was found lying on the floor suffering from a stab wound and was pronounced dead at the scene at 4.18pm. A post-mortem gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the liver.

Three men aged 18, 23 and 24 were arrested on 19 September. The next day Daniel Qureshi, 18, (25.11.98) and his brother Zane Qureshi, 24, (9.5.93), both of Catherine Gardens, Hounslow, were charged with murder.

The Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) led by Detective Chief Inspector Sam Price are investigating.

Patrick’s sister, Katherine Oyeri, said: "Patrick's life was taken by a cowardly, senseless stabbing. A father was taken away from his 5-year-old daughter, a brother was taken away from his siblings and a son was taken from his parents: he said "see you later" to his mother in the morning, with her not knowing he would not return.

"No parent should have to bury their child, and no-one should ever have to die alone, suffering and helpless. Whilst we as a family are trying to come to terms with our tragic loss, the police are doing everything possible to make sure the perpetrators are prosecuted. We want justice for our gentle giant.

"Our family are appealing to the public to help us seek justice, to help us strengthen and come together as a community. We ask anyone who knows anything connected to this horrible crime, no matter how small, to please be brave and come forward with what you know. We appeal to you to help us all stand against violence in our neighbourhoods."

Detective Chief Inspector Sam Price, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) who is leading the investigation, added: "Patrick's family has been left devastated by his untimely death. We know that there was a fight in the road between two different groups of men before he was stabbed and we would echo the Oyeri family's appeal to urge any witnesses who saw what happened or perhaps captured the events on their mobile phones, to contact us. Anyone with information who wants to speak to a third party can pass information to us in complete confidence via Crimestoppers."

Anyone with information should call the HMCC incident room number of 020 8721 4054 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
