Victim of Camden murder named


Detectives are continuing to appeal for information and witnesses after the murder of a young man in Camden.

At 22:13hrs on Tuesday, 20 February, police were called to reports of a disturbance on Malden Road near the junction with Marsden Street, NW5.

Officers attended the location and found a man suffering serious stab injuries. They administered first aid prior to the arrival of the London Ambulance Service.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

While formal identification awaits, officers are confident that the victim is 20-year-old Sadiq Aadam Mohamed, from the Camden area.

A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating, led by Detective Inspector Simon Pickford.

DI Pickford said: “This is a tragic set of circumstances where yet another young life has been lost in a senseless act of violence. The investigation is still in its early stages and we are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry to establish exactly what happened on the evening of 20 February.

“I particularly want to speak to anyone who was driving in the area of Malden Road around the time of the incident. Information can be given at any time by calling either the incident room or Crimestoppers to remain anonymous.

“It is absolutely vital that anyone with information comes forward to speak to us; a family is mourning the loss of a young man and we will continue working to ensure that those responsible are held accountable.”

At this early stage, there have been no arrests.

Urgent enquiries are underway to establish the full circumstances; officers are pursuing the possibility of a link with the Bartholomew Road murder that happened on the same evening.
