Man stabbed to death in Harrow named by police as they appeal for dashcam footage

Police have named the victim of a fatal stabbing in Harrow.

A murder investigation was launched after Robert Weston, 37, of Harrow, was found wounded in Hamilton Crescent on Monday.Police were called at around 2.05pm to reports a man in his 30s had been stabbed.

Officers, medics from London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended and attempted to save the victim’s life but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although formal identification is yet to take place, Robert Weston’s family were informed and they continue to receive support from specially trained officers.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, who is leading the enquiries, said: “This was a terrible incident and my condolences are with the victim’s loved ones.

“We believe that the assault took place inside a house and enquiries are ongoing to determine how Robert came to lose his life.

“At this time, I am interested to hear from anyone who was travelling in Hamilton Crescent or the Kingsway around the time of the offence, and who may have dash cam footage to share.

“This would have been between the times of 13:45hrs and 14:15hrs on Monday 26 February.

“Even if you didn’t see anything significant, your dash cam footage may tell a different story, so please do contact my team of detectives.”

No arrests have been made and a crime scene remains in place.

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote CAD3619/26Feb. You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Superintendent Matt Cray, who leads policing in Harrow, said: “This is a devastating incident and our thoughts are with Robert’s family and loved ones.

“We remain in the early stages of our investigation, however I am confident there is no wider risk to the community in Harrow.

“This will have a significant impact on how the community feels about their safety and there will be enhanced patrols in the area over the next few days to respond to any concerns people may have.

“The team of detectives who are investigating Robert’s death are working hard to establish what happened, and I would ask that anyone who has not yet come forward with information, which could help their enquiries, does so without delay.”
