Four men arrested in connection with Downham stabbing

This Is Local London: Afyon Afyon

Police investigating a man who died in Downham after being stabbed have arrested four men.

Named locally as 22-year-old Afyon Saint-Hilaire, he was found having crashed a car on Sunday July 13 following reports of a fight outside McDonald’s in Old Bromley Road.

Today (Tuesday July 15) officers say four men, 18, 19, and two 23-year-olds, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody at a south London police station.

An incident room has opened under Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Gwyn of the Homicide and Major Crime Command at Lewisham.

Police say a post-mortem examination held at the Princess Royal University Hospital yesterday (Monday July 14) gave cause of death as shock and hemorrhage and a stab wound to the leg.

The murder is not being treated as gang-related and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0208-721-4805 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111

I wish reports such as this stopped referring to those who maybe responsible as men? They are not men, never have been men, never will be men. They are just Cowards & that,s all they are.
