A man has been charged with the murder of a teenager in Walworth.

Officers were called at 4.20pm on December 30 to Latimer House on Beaconsfield Road. They found Dogan Ismail, 17, of Peckham, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem gave the cause of death as a single stab wound.

Police today charged 18-year-old Anthony Munroe, an agency worker from Walworth, with the murder of Mr Ismail. He is also charged with one count of theft allegedly committed on December 30.

Munroe is due to appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

A statement previously released on behalf of Mr Ismail’s family said: “Our beloved son, friend, cousin, nephew and grandson has been cruelly taken away from us. Words cannot how much we will miss him.”

Police are still trying to trace 15-year-old Dawda Jallow from the Peckham area, who they want for interview in connection with the inquiry.

For an immediate sighting of Dawda Jallow, call 999.

Anyone with information call the incident room on 020 8358 0200 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
