A teenager who was stabbed to death has been named.

Kevin Ssali , of Whitworth Road, Norwood, was stabbed just before 9.45pm yesterday in Burnt Ash Road, Lee.

Police, London Ambulance Service and an ambulance helicopter attended and the 14-year-old was taken to a south London hospital suffering stab injuries, but he died at the hospital.

It is believed Kevin was travelling on a route 202 bus through Lee Green, SE12. The bus’s destination was The Royal Standard in Charlton.

As the victim got off the bus in Burnt Ash Road he was attacked and stabbed. Officers are trying to establish if there was some sort of altercation on board the bus which led to the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dunne from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command is leading the investigation. He said: “I am appealing for anyone who travelled on the route 202 bus on its way through the Lee area just before 9.45pm on Saturday night to speak to my officers. Did you witness an altercation or argument involving a group of male youths?

“I would also like to speak to anyone who was in Burnt Ash Road, where the victim got off the bus. I need to know what the series of events were which culminated in a 14-year-old boy losing his life.”

A post mortem is due to take place at Greenwich Mortuary tomorrow.

Three men, all believed to be in their mid to late teens, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and they have been taken to a south London police station, where they remain in custody.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

In an unrelated incident police were called to reports of a man stabbed in New Cross Road at around 3.55am this morning. The 19-year-old was taken to a south London hospital where he remains in a critical condition. No one has been arrested.
