Man, 20, dies in Finsbury Park stabbing

A 20-year-old man has been stabbed to death in north London.

Police were called to Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, just after 0300 BST and found two men with stab wounds a short distance from each other.

Despite the efforts of medics, one was pronounced dead in nearby Roth Walk.

The second man, 21, was taken to hospital before being discharged. He was later arrested on suspicion of murder, possession of an offensive weapon and affray.

He remains in custody at a north London police station.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said At this early stage it is believed both males had been involved in an altercation involving a number of other people in the area of Roth Walk prior to the emergency services being called.

The dead man has yet to be formally identified but his next of kin have been informed. A post-mortem examination is due to take place.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan posted online about the killing, saying he was deeply saddened by another life unnecessarily lost to violent crime on our streets.

He said The Met Police are using extra City Hall resources to fight this scourge and to remove violent criminals and weapons from the streets.
