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.
