Case synopsis:

Joshua Boadu, 23, died a week after being stabbed in the street in Bermondsey.

Detectives believe he was attacked outside Helen Taylor House in Linsey Street on the evening of 11 June 2018.

He collapsed after taking refuge in a property in Lucey Way and police and paramedics were called at around 6.20pm.

The victim, who was known as SJ and lived in Bermondsey, died in hospital at 11.20am on 18 June 2018.

A post-mortem examination gave the preliminary cause of death as stab wound to the chest.

On 28 September 2018 Denillson Davis, 20 (10.07.98) of Montgomery Avenue, Hemel Hempstead was charged with murder. A 17 year-old boy was released under investigation.

Davis is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on 11 March 2019.

During appeals for information, detectives said they believed the suspects, a group of young black men, drove to the area in a blue Peugeot SUV.

They are thought to have had a separate altercation with the occupants of a silver VW Golf on Raymouth Road around 20 minutes before the attack on Joshua Boadu.

Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell, who is leading the investigation, said: "I would also like to appeal directly to the occupants of the silver Golf to come forward as I believe they hold vital information that could help us identify the males in the silver Peugeot SUV. Any information will be treated with the strictest of confidence.

"I would urge anybody with information about the murder of SJ to get in touch. His family and friends are understandably desperate for answers and I am committed to finding those responsible."
