Kwame Ofosu-Asare who was stabbed to death in Brixton, south London

An 18-year-old man has been arrested by detectives investigating the murder of teenager Kwame Ofosu-Asare in Brixton, south London.

The 17-year-old was found with fatal stab wounds in Adelaide Close on the Moorlands Estate on the evening of March 2.

Kwame and his friend had visited a recording studio in Brixton, and were on their way to the friend’s relative’s house, when they were chased by two young men and assaulted.

Kwame, who lived in Catford, south-east London, was on his way to hospital when he died in the ambulance. A post-mortem examination revealed he had died from multiple stab wounds.

An 18-year-old man from Lambeth has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody at a south London police station, Scotland Yard said.

Kwame’s death was one of a spate of knife attacks in Lambeth in late February and early March.

Anyone with information should call the incident room on 020 8721 4205; or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
