Police investigating the death of a man in Wembley are appealing to a woman with a pushchair who may have have information to come forward.
Aaron Payne was stabbed in Chalkhill Road shortly before 7pm on Wednesday, September 5.
The 26-year-old, from the Wembley area, died just over a week later on Thursday, Septmber 13 at St Mary’s Hospital. A post mortem found the cause of death as haemorrhaging as a result of a stab wound.
Officers from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command (HSCC) are keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone who has information on what happened. In particular they want to talk to a woman with a push chair who was seen in the area at the time of the attack, and to any of Arron’s friends.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Manning said: “I would like to reiterate my appeal for anyone who was in the Chalkhill Road area of Wembley around the time of the incident to come forward and speak to my officers or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
“Even if you did not see the incident itself, you may have witnessed the events leading up to, or immediately after the stabbing. What you saw could prove vital in bringing whoever is responsible for this callous attack to justice.
“Arron was young man with a steady job, from a good family and was in a committed relationship with his girlfriend. He had his whole life to look forward to.”
Dean Gabay, 22, of no fixed abode, has been charged with murder. He was remanded in custody when he appeared at Hendon Magistrates’ Court yesterday, and is due to appear tomorrow at the Old Bailey.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 0208 358 0300 or Crimstoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
