A new appeal for witnesses and information has been released by the Met Police today (Wednesday, April 7) following the fatal stabbing of Reece Young in Croydon last month.

23-year-old Reece was stabbed and killed during an altercation on Alpha Road on Tuesday, March 30, around 9.10pm when police were called.

As the Croydon Guardian reported previously, the stabbing happened as people gathered for a vigil remember 19-year-old Tai Jordan O'Donnell.

Tai had been fatally stabbed on the same road just days before, on March 3.

Police said previously they believed a number of people witnessed Reece's fatal stabbing at the vigil on March 30.

While they have already spoken to people at the scene, Wednesday's appeal suggested there were further witnesses police believe saw what happened and may have information regarding the stabbing.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh, who is leading the investigation, said: "We are continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the area of Alpha Road that night to come forward and speak with us.

"We need to hear from anyone who has information, or who captured the fight on their mobile phones.

"One piece of information, no matter how small, could prove vital in us being able to provide Reece’s family with the answers they need."

Anybody with information is asked to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 7449/30MAR.

Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, by calling 0800 555 111.

Two men have so far been arrested in connection with Reece's death.

After he was fatally stabbed, two men left the scene in a vehicle before police arrived.

They later turned up at a south London hospital with stab wounds believed to have been sustained in the same incident.

Met Police attended the hospital and arrested both men, aged 33 and 32, on suspicion of murder.

The 33-year-old was later discharged from hospital and taken to a police station. He has since been bailed to return on a date in late April.

After his arrest, police said the 32-year-old assaulted police officers and NHS staff before forcing his way out of the hospital.

An urgent search was carried out and he was returned to custody on March 31. He has since been bailed to return on a date in late April.
