Case synopsis:

Nedim Bilgin, 17, was stabbed to death in Islington on 29 January 2019.

Police were called to a report of an assault in Caledonian Road near the junction with Tilloch Street at 6.49pm.

Nedim was pronounced dead at the scene at 7.15pm. A postmortem confirmed the cause of death was a stab wound.

Detectives launched a murder investigation and appealed for witnesses.

Four men aged between 16 and 18 were arrested on suspicion of murder.

DCI Mark Wrigley, who is leading the investigation, said: "This fatal knife attack took place just before 7pm in a area when lots of people would have been walking or driving through.

"We have had reports of people seen running around and on pedal bikes near Caledonian Road junction with Tilloch Street, N1 before and just after 7pm. Were you there? Did you see anything suspicious? Do you record footage before or after the attack or have your vehicle's dashcam on? We need to hear from you to help build a clearer picture of what unfolded."

Chief Superintendent Nick Davies from Central North Area said: "Tragically the local community is now coming to terms with the senseless loss of life of a young man who had everything to live for.

"Three arrests have been made so far. The investigation continues apace. My officers and those from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are carrying out a number of detailed forensic and CCTV footage related enquiries.

"I completely understand the alarm and concern it has raised from those who live and work in the area.

"A crime scene will remain in place today as officers continue their painstaking work to piece together the details of the attack.

"I would urge the local community to be patient and cooperate where possible with the work detectives are getting on with in the area.

"My officers will be out working to support investigators today and be there to talk to the public and listen to the concerns they have. Neighbourhood patrols will be stepped up in the area and locals can expect to see more police. I would urge anyone with information on the attack to contact police without delay. "
