Detectives investigating the fatal stabbing of a 42-year-old man have made two arrests.

Lennox Nigel Alcendor was stabbed to death in Anson Road, Cricklewood last week.

A 42-year-old man and a 30-year-old man were both arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday, February 25 and taken into custody.

On Friday, February 21 police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 6:45am to reports of an injured man in Anson Road, NW2.

Despite the efforts of medics, Mr Alcendor, from Harlseden, was pronounced dead at the scene.

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

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Stancombe, said: "Our investigation is moving at pace and though two arrests have now been made, I remain keen on hearing from anyone who witnessed the incident, which took place on a residential street. I am sure that there are people who have not yet spoken to us but may have important information about what unfolded.

“Every call is treated in strictest confidence and your information could help hugely. Please don’t hesitate to make the call.”

Detectives are particularly keen to hear from anyone who was either walking or driving in the area of Cricklewood Broadway or Anson Road at the time of the incident and may have seen, or have dash cam footage of a fight/altercation taking place.
