THE premises where a man was stabbed to death early yesterday morning may have been used as a brothel, police believe.

The 27-year-old was fatally stabbed once in the chest at the address in Watling Avenue at around 3.50am on Saturday.

A police spokesman confirmed detectives are investigating the theory that the premises were being used for paid for sex services.

A group of men seen in the area at the time is still being sought by police in connection with the incident.

A post mortem is due to take place this morning at Finchley Mortuary.

Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 0208 358 0100, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
