Police have launched another murder investigation in London after a young man was stabbed to death on Easter Sunday.
The man, thought to be 20, suffered a fatal stab wound at around 1:10 on Sunday morning, after leaving a nearby bar.
Met Police say they attended the scene, in posh Wandsworth, south west London, along with the London Ambulance Service.
Despite the best efforts of officers and paramedics he was pronounced dead at the scene just before 2am.
Formal identification awaits and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course, but his next-of-kin have been informed.
A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in custody at a west London police station.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell said: “Sadly, another family has been left devastated with the tragic death of a young man from an act of violence.
“We are appealing to anyone who was in the area to come forward.
“We know that the victim left a bar in Garratt Lane, SW18 at 01:05hrs and then seven minutes later he was found on Ellerton Road at the junction with Burntwood Lane.”
